    July 27, 2014 - Classic pinot. Nice nose and lots of fruit in the middle with a long finish. Black cherry and soft tannins.

    Tasted non blind at a wine tasting.

    Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of potpourri, acacia, pepper, black berries and black cherries. Flavors of black berries, Bing cherries and black raspberries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.

    December 29, 2013 - The color is beatiful clear ruby and garnet and is translucent. The smells are sweet exotic spices, red licorice, strawberry, olive and sweet cherry. The tastes are cherries, sassafras, black pepper, and earthy notes. The finish is lengthy and so flavorful. The tannins are soft satin and the fruit really comes through on this beautiful wine.

    August 3, 2013 - This is an absolutely fantastic wine. My palate favors wines that are right down the middle between old-world and new-world and this wine delivers. Beautiful fruit, but not jammy or perfum-y at all. Very pretty nose with wonderful fruit flavors. Medium-long finish and great structure. This wine is drinking absolutely wonderfully right now!!!
