Needs time to decant, after 90 minutes it's finally opening up. Pencil led, hibiscus tea, chocolate ganache on the nose. Ripe fruit medium to full bodied mouth feel. Tannins are mellow and really integrated fruit. Dark cherry cedar spice clove anise dark chocolate. Finish is balanced for 35 to 40 seconds.

Very well balanced, Lemon cello, followed by mild crushed rocks and white flowers. Mouth feel was medium, and the finish was medium also.

Still holding together. A few green hints within the first hour which were pushed back after the wine opened up more. Rich mouth feel, ripe fruit, graphite, pencil shavings, mild vanilla roasted blueberry in the secondary. Medium finish.

Drinking so good right now, tasting notes consistent with other notes.

Very approachable pnp, but really opens up an hour plus in. I have never been able to have a bottle make it past 2 hours before its all gone to know if it continues to get better.

My feeling is that the wine is not tight enough to hold together past 3 hours and the wine was made to pnp or a short decant window.
Not trying to take away from the positive notes, but actually consider this a great first bottle while another that needs time can get the time.
Cheers

Pnp, consumed within 2 hours. White flowers nose, muted fruit, good mouth feel. A little part in my opinion.

Strong anise fragrance , dried strawberries, alcohol, browned butter nose, ripe currants, dark chocolate, dried fig, cedar, solid tannins, long finish well over a minute, a bit of red rope (maybe toasted) after taste.

Cork was wet up to the top, but still held. Super ripe, crazy well balanced for the ripeness and the age. Most of the tannis are faded. Still very pleasant to drink, I would drink up.

Still drinking well, starting to show it's age in a good way. Cork was perfect, enjoyed on Easter with homemade sushi. No score but everyone loved this wine that had it.

This wine is drinking really well, good nose of mocha & cassis, full bodied, well balanced, vanilla, chocolate covered currants, hint of pencil shavings, medium to long finish. After taste is balanced leaving me wanting another sip. Consumed over 2 hours, best at 1 hour to 90 minutes.

Solid, still drinking well. PNP deep dark fruit, pencil, baking chocolate, slight vanilla, glass staining, full bodied crushing wine. Structure was balanced with a finish was shorter than expected. Next day, well reserved still showing good, heat was in check. Might have been magical with a 2 hour decant on the first night.

fell apart 2 hours in, big wine, classic Sonoma Coast profile. Nice nose. It's possible this bottle was not stored well.

I was excited to finally taste this wine and several people felt the same. Drinking really well, very enjoyable. Medium nose with floral/forest notes, fine structure acid and sugar was balanced, red wood rhubarb. medium finish.

This was a big wine, tasted with 15 other 2010 Pinot's and this was big. Needed 2 hours to decant before it was enjoyable. Could be getting to the end.

Beautiful Nose, sugar has faded. Still plenty of structure left but fading. Medium finish

Fruit was on the thin side, but structure was excellent. Let it evolve over several hours and it just improve.

Really needs time to open up. If your patient you'll be rewarded. Consistent tasting notes and I would have scored it mid 90's

WOTN ~ Still holding strong with many good years to go. Consistant tasting notes, it did have a funky moment 30 minutes in, but that all faded after an hour and continued to improve until the bottle was finished(about 3 Hours).

Very Clean, little acid left, subtle Lemon, honey suckle nose. Mild oak and fruit balance, a little butter. Lemony finish. I feel this wine is at the end of the drink window.

WOTN - consistent tasting notes, drinking very good now. Tasted against 12 JP Backus, 08 Pavie, 03 Léoville Las Cases, 98 Pavie, 92 Dunn Napa.

Didn't take any notes. I was blown away by this wine, more I was shocked this wine has received user scores lower than 94. Drinking well, very balanced, certainly higher level wine making than I am used to.

I felt it was drinking really well, balanced, opened up more after 1 hour in bottle.

Felt like it was just past it's prime. Lemon curd, honeysuckle acid, well balanced oak. Drank with Roast Chicken and potatoes.

I felt based on the tasting notes here I was not drinking the same wine. Very disappointed, this wine was not better than a $10 H3 from the bottom shelf of the super market. Consumed with pasta. I would rate this wine at 84. I saved half to review again, maybe it will improve.

White wine of the night at a South American tasting. Nice balance
