April 1, 2017 - I would echo what Oskiwawa wrote. Broadly a good wine, but the fruit wasn't as fresh or compelling as some bottles. A bit heavy and the acidity didn't lift it enough. That being said, it's still a good effort, just not compared to some they do.

February 20, 2017 - Opened and let breathe in the bottle for 2 hours. Not my style of pinot and for the style good but not great. Fruit forward. Sweet almost confectionary cherry and strawberry. Decent acidity and tannin but the overall package in not inspring to say the least. Should hold for a 3-5 years but I doubt this is going to improve.

January 22, 2017 - Medium body. Nice balance of fruit and acidity. Cranberry, raspberry, dark cherry and cola. Drinking well now, but has a few more years ahead of it.
