    December 16, 2014 - Who knew that Willamette Valley was geographically centered between Sonoma Coast and Burgundy??!!

    This had red ripe fruits ala Sonoma/RRV Pinot Noir but it opened with an exotic perfumed note I've only run across in a Burgundian Pinot. Medium bodied, satisfying, and bold. I like this wine. Dangerously easy drinking.

    December 3, 2014 - This one still need more time or a lot of air to smooth out. Good flavor, somewhat obstructed by a fair amount of structural elements that keep the fruit from shining through. Mostly red fruits, with lots of acidity and modest tannins. Good, but also somewhat disappointing at the same time.

    November 26, 2014 - Spectator Winemaker's Dinner with Véronique Drouhin-Boss at Home House, Portman Square. Limited note taking.
    À pointe. Warm concentrated mellow pinot fruit, hint of strappy leather, balanced by firm integrated tannins and well judged acidity. Very long.
    Excellent now and over the next 2-3 years.

    September 15, 2014 - Very nice red fruit, spice and a touch of earth. Very elegant and complete in the mouth. More rounded than the Shea. Really enjoyed the delicate spice notes.
