    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.

    June 11, 2016 - Rich pinot fruit, bruised strawberry/ blueberry with a nice allspice, nutmeg and spicy oak profile. Rounded and suave in a very new world way. Big crowd pleaser with lunch.

    June 11, 2016 - Similar tasting note to what I wrote back in January, but this time it is showing more finesse and elegance. The pieces seem to be integrating now into a nice wine. This still is a jammy fruit bomb, but I found it a treat to drink it along side a filet of Copper River Salmon.

    June 9, 2016 - Ruby red color and a really smooth, rich collection of light berries and spice. Really nice.

    June 4, 2016 - Very good wine. PnP to get those KB smokey initial flavors. Medium/light red color and light body. Strawberry, raspberry & cherry ripe fruit smells and flavors, with some subtle cola, herbs and granite. Food friendly with high acidity. Low tannins on medium-long, smooth finish.
