July 20, 2015 - The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like cherry with a subtle note of strawberry. It tastes like cherry and strawberry with a dash of spice. The body is light. The wine has juicy texture. The wine finishes short but seems to come back with cherry notes. The wine has low acidity. Certainly has past it's peak.

February 19, 2013 - My last bottle of this, and I must say it has held up surprisingly well. Starting to look its age in the glass, with some bricking and amber around the edge. The strawberry and cherry fruit has faded a bit, but spice and cola notes lead to a long finish where traces of sweet fruit still kick in at the very end. Complex and enjoyable. Not quite outstanding, but noticeably better than any other Central Coast Pinot I've ever had from this producer.

November 26, 2012 - Consistent with my previous note from earlier this year. Very, very good for an under $20 Central Coast Cali Pinot. A nicely balanced combination of strawberry and pomegranate fruit with a pleasant underlying acidity. The long, polished finish contains notes of cola, spice and a slightly chalky minerality. By far the best vintage of this I have tasted to date. Almost 90 points this time. 89+

April 16, 2012 - I am generally not a big fan of mass produced California Pinot Noir, but this is a very good one. Such a nice nose of berries, spice, flowers and earth. On the palate this is quite complex - full of ripe, sweet strawberry and raspberry flavors along with lots of spice and a touch of oak. There's just enough acidity to keep it lively too. Really delicious and by far the best wine under $20 I have ever had from this producer.
