    March 20, 2016 - Red fruited, with lots of floral spice notes and earthy minerals. Very nice acidity and some fine tannic structure. Approachable now, but will be at its best in 2-4 years.

    March 11, 2016 - Very pure-fruited and delicate. Benefits from a decant... it opens up to reveal gorgeous bright cherry and potpourri esters. The palate features generous length and nice chewy phenolic structure. I understand more hard pressings make it into this wine than the single vineyard Littorais. I think it's better for it. I love the structure here.

    December 23, 2015 - All rather pleasant and drinkable. Good volume and fruit but not particularly exciting or complex. One very good note but no symphony--or even quartet.

    September 30, 2015 - PnP. Medium light red. At the Spring Open House this was tighter than the Sonoma Coast but the intervening 6 months have been kind. Medium light red. Nice red fruited nose with a touch of spice. Medium to light weight on the palate but with lovely balance. Drinking nicely - perhaps suggesting the 13 SVDs will be more forward than the 12s.

    June 26, 2015 - Dinner at AG with Ted Lemon (AG, stockholm): this had a great nose with lot of pinosity, a little less elegant than the single vineyard designations but smooth and spicy and full of ripe berries and decent freshness. lovely wine!
