Mediocre. Couldn't decide if was corked or lame. I have one moe bottle to decide.

Even after cakebread and a bottle of pirouette. This wine stood out as full bodied with fruit and hints of cassis and berry.

Very disappointed. No structure or tannins compared to other Russian river pinots that I have drank. The one thing that came to mind as I drank the wine was grape juice. I hope the other vineyards that I have are better.

Like actors on the celebrity apprentice, This wine hasn't aged gracefully. Barely a hint of fruit and acidic overtones. Some hidden currant but not enough to remind of what it was at its peak.
