    August 22, 2016 - In a blind flight, it was my number 6 out of 6! Behind three Burgs, and an Oregon Pinot and another Cali. No question that it was New World. It just seemed simple, fruity and sweet as well as a bit thin. The damned thing is, that I have liked this quite a lot when had by itself with food!

    July 31, 2016 - Enjoyed by all with bbq chicken after brief decant. Smooth, silky, big and fruity. Not your quintessential Pinot, but a very fine wine nonetheless.

    June 17, 2016 - Loved this one. Typical to the variety. Good for another few years. Well balance with cherries. Damn. That's all I can say.
