    October 25, 2012 - Nose is a little green/stemmy with cinnamon and cherry. Palate is black cherry a bit of toffee or Carmel. Initially a little hot. Decent but not a great QPR.

    April 11, 2012 - Light, cherry skin color with little viscosity. Surprisingly light for a California Pinot, which in my experience are normally much more extracted.

    Fresh and fruity on the nose, with cherry, strawberry, and cola, with undertones of mocha, walnut, cinnamon, orange blossom, and myrtle.

    A solid medium body with food-friendly acidity, and a bit of a tingle on the tongue. The tannins are soft and a little powdery. Cherry juice, Indian spices (cardamom, coriander, etc.), ginger, and cinnamon that hold out through the mid-palate, finishing with dark chocolate, black tea, and moss.

    An overall pleasant experience. The relatively high alcoholic content (14.5%) is noticeable, but only slightly so on the palate.

    November 11, 2011 - Enjoyed with baked salmon. Always a reliable pinot noir.

    March 16, 2010 - Light ruby color. Cherry, hint of cinnamon and clove. Black cherries, red fruit and slight minerality but finish is a little disappointing
