June 22, 2016 - Better showing than previous bottles. More sweet cherry and less of the off putting baked/stewed strawberry that seems to dominate some Cali and Oregon Pinots. This is still nothing exceptional, but it's a decent mid-week drink.

May 13, 2016 - A decent Cali Pinot. Not ridiculously over-extracted like so many are, but hardly Burgundy. Classic cherry elements without any sourness and a very good mouthfeel but just not enough going on to truly impress. Perhaps it is already starting to fade.

Medium minus ruby, sweet ripe red fruit, red cherry, really pure fruit, some oak - ~30% new french oak (actually 10%). Baked strawberries. A bit developed. Good fruit ripeness but structurally a hot mess.
Elevated alcohol - 14% (actually 14.5%)
Medium plus body
I guessed Australian Grenache... lateralled to Sonoma Pinot.
Not my favorite rendition of Pinot, but it's a popular style.

March 7, 2016 - Ripe in style very much Californian pinot noir, darkish in color for a pinot, intense on the oak and on the fruit intensity with high alcohol. Not my kind of pinot anymore not even at this price range
