February 18, 2017 - Coravin; G20; 4*+8*+4.5+8.5+9+5+5=94+; velvet red color with red-orange edge in the glass; more fruit than the Ceras, especially high austere red fruit, but both have a nutty-sheep-cheese low note; very lively and fresh, smooth mouthfeel; vanilla at the front of the palate with a long raspberry linger that is like a steady drip of delicious fresh red berry; very long, smooth, balanced finish with a lean toward juicy acidity; will be very long lived!

September 23, 2016 - North Shore Weekend; 9/22/2016-9/24/2016 (North Shore, MN): Very dark red color. PNP, drank 1+ glass on day 1 and 1+ glass on day 2. This was still a bit wrapped up on day one. The nose was smoky and woodsy with lots of spice and a gorgeous forest floor note. The palate was fim and showed brooding black fruits and brisk tannins. Day two found this rounding up considerably. The palate saw the tannins ease up and soften and the fruit become more focused and brighter, still dark with some sauvage and animal notes. Medium length, still fairly dry. This is still quite young and I'd give this another 2 years ideally.1 person found this helpful Comment

September 22, 2016 - Very good Oregon pinot with oily nose/taste. Not my favorite but clearly burgundian style.

July 8, 2016 - PNP. Nose was open. Palate was not. Drank over four hours and it didn't budge much at all. Seems like the stuffing is there, just needs more time.1 person found this helpful Comment
