April 22, 2017 - 13.6% alcohol. Aromatically layered, multifaceted, open, and quite beautiful with red cherry, strawberry, raspberry, baking spice, potpourri, forest floor, and earth. Pure, sophisticated, elegant, harmonious, and silky textured in the mouth with terrific concentration, vibrancy, energy, and length. Outstanding bordering on profound showing. Popped, poured, and enjoyed over the course of about two hours at Restaurant Alma.1 person found this helpful Comment

March 24, 2017 - I liked better than K. Past its prime a bit, but still nice richness of fruit and good length. Dark color, dark cherries in terms of fruit.

February 14, 2017 - Dark fruit, bold pinot, needs an hour decant. Very good pinot , nice long finish. Still improving, I am glad I have more bottles in my cellar.

October 11, 2016 - PNP at a restaurant. A little more earth than previous bottles I've had, with some forest and mushroom aromas. After some time in the glass, the more common strawberry fruit tastes emerged. Complex, with a nice finish. A terrific wine that is also always a crowd-pleaser for those who aren't wine snobs.

August 14, 2016 - This bottle seemed a little bit closed. Re-corked and will visit again the following night.
