    December 6, 2014 - Crumbled cork, but I believe very slight TCA was the culprit here and possible slight oxidation. It showed just glimpses of fig, earth and spice, along with silky texture and nice depth. It would have been a good one- disappointed.

    November 21, 2014 - Very Powerful Pinot Noir. The extended barrel and bottle age clearly shows well in this wine. Sweet cherry aromas with a pleasant hint of forest floor. Perfectly integrated dark red berry flavors with a lingering finish.

    November 8, 2014 - A very nice wine. Friday nite dinner at the club. Very nice nose of cherry and some minerals. Palate of plums with a nice cranberry bite that was enhanced by the wonderful structure.

    This is about as good as domestic pinot can get ... even if you are in France.
