September 13, 2014 - Drinking very nicely right now. Tannins are round and smooth, fruit showing well and all components are working harmoniously together.

August 23, 2014 - This is easily one of the best Pinots I've ever had, though I'm not a big fan of Pinot. Not really dark, but there's more flavour than you would expect from the colour. Depth to the flavour, with a nice, long, lingering aftertaste ("finish," as everyone ALWAYS says) that is delightful.

June 27, 2014 - Nose of a classic Anderson Valley pinot -- blueberry, menthol and wet Earth, with secondary notes of wild berry and black tea. On the palate, luscious black cherry and blueberry, with more menthol and some Indian spice. Prominent tannin is counterbalanced by a nice acidic streak. Definitely on the big side, but well balanced. Nicely done.

June 27, 2014 - Pretty, red translucence in the glass. Very gentle, close to earthy, maybe, mushroomy nose. Very light on the tongue. Thankfully, does not blast me with cherry flavor at the tip of the tongue. It definitely firms up as it moves past the tongue and palate. The initial lightness frightened me, at first, but in the back of the mouth firm tannins and supporting acids make this one more enjoyable for me.

May 5, 2014 - Deep red center, red rim with some signs of age.
Sweet, blackberry, raspberry, plums, roast pork, roses, smoked bacon, some brandied oranges.
Smooth, a little cooked (but pleasant), high toned vine notes, meaty, violets, raspberries and underripe strawberries, good acidity and tannin still, good length of red fruit with some greener notes.
Very good Anderson Pinot, drinking well now, but will probably get better over the next year or two.
