January 8, 2015 - Needed a couple of hours to get going, but once it opened up, this was delicious. Elegant, red fruited with good depth and length. Still more or less primary, but quite tasty and accessible for the vintage.2 people found this helpful Comment

December 28, 2012 - Christmas Eve Dinner 2012: WOTN at Christmas Eve dinner, impressing everyone from white wine drinkers to cabernet aficionados. Deep nose of pure red fruits, intermingling with damp earth, ground mace and black tea. Silky smooth palate with flavors of cherry and refined spice and a backbone of moderate acidity and mineral nuance. Medium-bodied with a broad finish.

March 1, 2012 - Earthy, red fruit aroma. Vanilla, oak and spice on the smooth palate. Good acidity and surprising tannins for a pinot.

October 7, 2011 - This wine indeed has a very intriguing nose full of red berries, pleasant oak and a lovely air of pepper(!) palate is medium-bodied with a rather short finish, dominated by red fruit and an interesting youthfulness. Acidity is ok but not in any way striking, on the contrary well-integrated. To me this wine represents a good old-world pinot on the rather powerful side, still the end-palate and the overall impression is too one-dimensional and does not awake my curiousity. From magnum.

March 10, 2011 - Double-decanted (immediately), then left bottle open for evening. Nice bottle, though a bit variable; changes considerably with a bit of air. Nice medium-dark color. Enjoyable earthy nose (blows off fairly rapidly) -- dark fruit and smoky; a bit of heat coming through. Palate: well-structured, dark fruit, some of the earthiness that was picked up on the nose coming through at first, then blowing off with some air. No real heat to speak of on the palate (or discernible acidity for that matter). Finish knocks it down a couple of points -- a little hard and sudden; not overtly tannic, exactly -- hard to describe. Try again in a year or so.
