    July 19, 2014 - Pop and pour and tasted with food at the end of a dinner. (Spaghetti with a tomato-basil sauce, and grilled chicken, in case you were wondering.)
    Good nose of spice and candied fruit. A bit sweet but the earthy element along with a core of acidity keeps the ripe fruit in check. Enjoyable.

    May 20, 2014 - Another great value Pinot from Sandler. Somewhat on the bigger side, with lots of bright red fruit and some earth. Good acidity, so it should age.

    May 6, 2014 - A darker, heavier pinot. Reminds me of Meiomi but better. Cedar box and strawberry rhubarb pie. Was still good 5 nights later. Nice QPR!
