    July 13, 2016 - Bright red fruit aromas and flavors, just slightly starting to mature. Lots of baking spice. Good concentration and length. Perhaps a touch sweet on finish. Overall, very well done.

    June 23, 2016 - This had a more earthy profile than the '13, with a light funk, macerated cherry, cherry skin, good fine tannins, and a nice earth-mineral-fruit balance. well-structured, in a good place right now.

    April 4, 2016 - ONe of my favorite Beaux ever. Lots of dark fruits, great finish, still very youthful.

    January 17, 2016 - Though not the most sophisticated presentation of Pinot Noir, I find these '08s continue to age very well. They offer plenty of fruits with a moderately aged bouquet. I suspect they only have a few more years left of prime drinking. (Thankfully, I have subsequent vintages!) For someone who is not a Pinot fan broadly, this remains one of my go-to options for the grape.
