    August 15, 2015 - Very nice wine approaching full maturity. The nose is more dark fruited than the Sleepy Hollow and has hints of leather, plum, baked blackberry, lots of spice, along with a hint of mocha. The palate is rich and delicious with lovely fruit and very nice balance. Really nice pinot in a great spot right now.

    March 7, 2015 - Really terrific, aged pinot. Medium bodied, balanced fruit and tannins. Quite enjoyable.

    October 8, 2014 - Just a splendid pinot! As alive & vibrant as 2 years ago, with years ahead of it! Joe Davis is an artisan with Gary's vineyard!

    April 4, 2014 - Medium ruby. Nose of pungent florals, cherry pits, anise, acrid white stones. Tons of minerals and iron on the palate. Sprouted layers of deeply pitched red fruit with so much sweet grip after about 45 minutes in the glass. Moderate acidity and still some structured tannins. Long, stony finish. Great stuff.

    January 11, 2014 - Popped and poured. Medium ruby color. Nose of dusty black raspberry with notes of violets, forest floor, and sea air. Integrated layers of mulberry, loganberry, raspberry, licorice, briar, and a bit of moca in a fascinating mélange of tastes. Alive with ample acidity and anchoring structure; tannins certainly present but filed off and smoothed out. Long finish with multiple echoes of stemmy red and black fruit, still retaining plenty of grip. Wonderfully satisfying, one of the best domestic pinots I have sampled to date.
