    December 19, 2016 - Raspberry. Nice full Pinot nose. Just settling down. Nice open but still has time. Warm spices cloves and oak. Smoke carmelized bacon. Rich fruit and just right tanins to offset. Cherry vanilla sift acids. Very classic Pinot.

    December 18, 2016 - Another fantastic bottle. Did not decant. Notes are from after being open for a couple of hours.

    I noticed on this one a bit of tannic roughness on the attack that I found a little surprising.

    Otherwise, nicely balanced, medium bodied, mostly red berry fruit but a bit of plum maybe. Rich but not ripe. Long finish where some earth and tea flavors emerge. Maybe a little bit of smoke throughout, but only just a hint. There is also a bit of orange peel on the nose.

    December 11, 2016 - Wow. What a fantastic bottle. Decanted and these notes are from after 90 minutes in the decanter. On opening wasn't nearly as expressive.

    The nose is mostly earthy with some smoke and red berry fruit, maybe a little pine? Really great tasting with mostly red berry, a little tobacco, some black pepper. Well balanced with a lengthy finish.
