    February 1, 2015 - Clear, light magenta. Significant rim browning. Graphite, cherry, prune. Low acids, low tannins strawberry. Short balanced finish. Past it's prime

    February 17, 2013 - Thought it was ok. Much prefer the more recent vintage Sonoma coast bottle.

    December 14, 2012 - Friday Wine Night 12/14: Definite Pinot funk to this, strawberry, cherry, plums. Ready to drink...I don't see this evolving more, but it's an enjoyable bottle.

    May 3, 2009 - Nose and palate of cherry, red currant and spice. Light bodied and light colored. Significant acid and light on sweetness made it lean towards the old world.
