Community Tasting Notes 46

April 21, 2017 - Second and final bottle. A bit of a disappointment, especially for a nearly $50 wine. Nothing technically wrong, but wine was one note with not much complexity. Medium bodied and a bit hot initially. I won't be buying again, but if you have one left, recommend holding to see if anything interesting develops.

January 15, 2017 - Faint on the nose, light to medium fruit. Well balanced with a silky finish. Not a lot of complexity, but nice. Drink now and over the next few years.

January 1, 2017 - Brownish red brick color. Floral nose, tart fruit. Medium to soft tannins, berries, vanilla. Medium to short finish. Very nice, soft pinot. Feels more like a classic CA pinot rather than a more full bodied Willamette Valley pinot. Drink now, not much reason to hold.

October 19, 2016 - A far different and much better wine than my last bottle. Nice nose hinted at the very satisfying blackberry, licorice and oak mixture to come. This is a good value wine from Soter. I will buy more.
