    September 17, 2017 - Another dark garnet Pisoni pinot noir; opaque-like. Black cherry, raspberry, strawberry, forest floor. Big, powerful and viscous, with intense fruit. Good structure. Good finish. Score 93+.

    June 26, 2017 - Darkest Pinot I’ve seen yet - near purple. Ozziewine nailed it: “Rich, pure, smooth, very dark fruit, just a hint of sweetness, jammy without excess, beautiful.” I’d call it a Raspberry jammy/sweetness and oh-so-very-smooth with fine tannins showing themselves for quick flashes. The wife and I agreed: this is the best Pinot Noir so far!

    February 10, 2017 - For us, this is what Pinot should be. Rich, pure, smooth, very dark fruit, just a hint of sweetness, jammy without excess, beautiful.
    Third bottle of this and just as great as the others. My notes, and 98 score, from March, 2016, still stand. It is mellowing so I'd drink them sooner than later as some of the youthful vibrancy, and fruit, is fading. If you like them more mature, this still has at least a few years to go.
    I am compelled to invoke the technical term "dee-lish"!
