    January 20, 2011 - Nice garnet color and crystal clear, not much aroma on opening but this has developed into a nicely balanced Santa Rita Hills pinot. We'll see how it holds up over the next hour.

    October 1, 2009 - Great taste and I would rate it higher but it seems a bit cloudy on opening.

    December 14, 2008 - Medium to darker ruby red with an spice nose. Still a bit forest floor element but more settled than before. Still improving with age. Herbs, moss, spice, earth and sage with firm structure. Almost a pepper like finish.
