    August 21, 2012 - This didn't need aeration at this point. While it did not have the depth of burgundies, it was an extremely pleasant pinot w some dimension. I wouldn't wait another year to drink this. I am sorry it was my last bottle.

    January 29, 2012 - Aerated into glass. Initial smell was of funk and olives...very strange. Bigger wine than I usually like for a Pinot Noir. Much better after standing in the glass for an hour. Okay, not my favorite, will see how it is today.

    May 12, 2011 - Medium ruby colour. Light nose of strawberry jello. Nice subtle notes of sassafras, sweet oak, fresh parsley and bing cherry show up initially, followed by a medium body of red rasberry and luden's cough drops(well, almost). No off odors, clean, well-made for the style and reasonably priced. Tasted against a similarly priced, '08 Mud House/central otago NZ pinot, which was also good with a slightly longer finish and more of a red pie cherry profile.
