    July 10, 2016 - Delicious. Very tasty. Went well with turkey burgers.

    January 10, 2016 - This wine made a stellar showing at our dinner party of 1/10/2016 (decanted 3 hours prior to dinner for one hour, then returned to the bottle). It was intensely floral and very feminine, with a strong midpalate and a persistent finish. One would never know that 2011 was a difficult vintage in California from this wine; best 2011 Pinot I've had. Everyone was impressed.

    August 15, 2014 - still young but with a little time to decant but was very good

    January 28, 2014 - Drunk along with a 2011 Black Kite River Turn
    Softer, more feminine, strawberry and light red fruits
    Acidity for days
    Delicious on its own
