    May 24, 2014 - Starting to add a little bit of brown to the color. Soft,mature picking up some secondary flavors. There is good balance of fruit,earthiness and this has come together well. I probably personally did like it better in its younger days. Will likely drink my other two bottles over the next year or two.

    February 16, 2014 - Really a lovely bottle. A bit of minerality to offset the fruit. A wonderful accompaniment to a family dinner at Bluacre Seafood.

    December 25, 2013 - Ripe, but still more restrained than I was expecting from the producer and the vintage. Dark cherries, Brussels sprouts and some earth on the nose. The fruit is hinting at raisination yet somehow stays interesting and out of the danger zone. There's nice acidity up front that is quickly supplanted by extracted dark fruit before the tannic remnants come in. Pleasantly surprised.

    November 20, 2013 - More of a robust Pinot. Similar in style to other Ken Wright's but atypical to most Pinots on the market. More of a Syrah style. I normally find that Pinots seem very watery and weak. A little bit of alcohol heat that went away with some time in the glass. Very fruity. Very good for a Pinot.
