    January 29, 2016 - Rich, seamless and balanced, this is drinking beautifully right now. In short, you are unlikely to have any Day 2 notes. The release notes from the winery predicted this would be an unusually age worthy American Pinot Noir, and it looks like they nailed it. BTW, I enjoy both delicate and lush Pinots. If you don't enjoy lush Pinots, this is not the wine for you.

    January 12, 2016 - Seems a little tired, like the fruit has evaporated. I had rated as a 92 in two 2013 postings.

    November 5, 2015 - Friend brought this to dinner yesterday - I did not take notes, but it was memorable. What struck me most was the incredible balance, harmony and seamlessness of the wine. It is complex, elegant and has an uber-silky texture. Mostly red fruits and spice with hints of cola and tea. I have no basis for comparison, but the fruit seemed slightly subdued and my guess is that it has lost some of its freshness and vibrancy. However the wine is now at that lovely stage where the fruit is simply one element in a complex, harmonious, alluring mix of textures, flavors and aromas. An absolute joy to drink. 92+
