    December 24, 2014 - Popped and poured at East of Eighth with friends and family before the "Very Jewish Christmas" comedy show at the Gotham Comedy Club on Christmas Eve. This is getting better with just a bit of age, so no way to tell where it peaks. The mag I have will be astounding if I can keep my hands off it for long enough.

    Very light in color. Aroma of red fruit. Palate is red fruit with some spice and a very smooth mouth feel that is well integrated and not disjointed at all. Only a very tiny bit of cola pinot funk, which is so light that it actually adds a positive to the overall flavor profile instead of the negative I often find when that flavor is too strong. A wonderful effort. I am not a fan of shitty Oregon pinot, and I do not drink a lot of it, so my opinion may not be worth very much, but this is far and away the best Oregon pinot I have ever had.

    November 15, 2014 - Initially somewhat subdued, but the distinct clarity of shitty-ness showed through well after about 90 minutes of air.

    November 9, 2014 - An evening with friends and a lot of wine (Chris and Renee's Home): My first time trying this wine that was bottled as a memorial to our passed friend Bob Wood. It was shitty.
    Light in color which I was surprised at for the vintage. Light ruby. The nose has nice cherries, slight candied cherries and is very clean. On the palate, this is very soft in texture. Plenty of cherry and sour cherry fruit. A hint of cough drops. Some complexity although this is very young. I would think Bob would have loved this wine. In another place, I might score it 89-91 points, but that's not really the point here is it. Glad to help out Bob's family and to be able to toast to Bob's memory.

    August 10, 2014 - This is the Grand Cru of all shitty wines. A bright cranberry color in the glass that masks how shitty it realy is. What is that outside, hey you kids Get Off My Lawn. Just delicious flavors on the palate, you Yaks will need to judge for yourself.
