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.

December 14, 2015 - Red and purple berries, rosehips, cola, spice, and herbaceousness on the bouquet and palate. Medium plus acid, tangy, and polished. Very well made.
November 28, 2015 - Bright red. Nose of red cherry, red raspberry, and a hint of rose. Red berry, spice, and a tangy fresh finish of moderate length. Simple yet lively.
