    January 12, 2017 - Decent Pinot but for the price tag a little hesitant to buy more. It has good cola flavors and some subdued fruit but not anything of a wow factor. Will try the others with a good decant and see why comes of them

    January 1, 2017 - Nice and smooth with some cherry and spice box on the palate. A pleasant wine and it went quickly at a large birthday gathering.

    January 1, 2017 - Raspberry and cherry fruit. Well structured and showing good right now. Don't see it improving much from here. IMO - Drink em if you got em.

    December 24, 2016 - Pop and poured into a decanter and immediately served.
    Ripe fruit in a rich style but with good acidity to carry the fruit. Layers of flavor, leaning ripe strawberries and red cherries. Hint of forest floor to balance out the fruit.
    Delicious.

    December 10, 2016 - This has mellowed out somewhat, but still unmistakably a big CA pinot. Moving from a big cherry cola to having secondary notes of spice and mild herb. Rounding into something more exciting than a couple of years ago. Will hold onto my last bottle for several more years to see what happens.
