    February 1, 2012 - Popped and poured. Very solid Pinot Noir for the price.

    March 6, 2011 - Cherry on the nose, beautiful light red in color. Silky smooth with a spicy, subtle bite to it. Perfect for the turkey pot pie this is being paired with.

    January 25, 2011 - Pale red colour. Soft nose showing a bit of red fruit and some tannings. Pretty simple palate of red fruit with a touch of spice that is quite dominated towards the finish by oak. The light palate maybe have been to blame (or the over-oaking) but this wine had no balance between the fruit and the oak. Air did not help create balance, neither did drinking it over 3 days. This is definitely for people who don't mind strong oak on the palate of a delicate wine.
