nice bottle, I think it came together nicely since last time. Nose of cherry cherries, graphite and a touch of earthiness. On the palate the wine was nice, cherries and mushrooms.

nice bottle popped and ran thru vinturi. nose was rich, vanilla, cinnamon and oak at first. Palate was smooth with dark chocolate notes and cherries. Nice bottle of wine. Upset it is my last. I would like to see what this is like in another year or two.

bought to a byob, popped and poured. Nice medium body wine, with cherrys, and tobacco starting out on the palate with a sweeter finish. would had scored higher, but the nose was a bit muted.

really nice bottle of wine. One of the better cabs I have had. drank over the course of 90 minutes, the wine got better with time. I will decant next time. Nose of dark fruit, with a touch of leather. The wine was very dark in the glass, on the palate there was lots of dark fruit, and a touch of sweetness near the end. Tannins were almost non existent. Lots of sediment, so I will run through a filter when decanting.

nice bottle of wine, saying 84 because I wish the acidity was a bit higher. Went well with sushi.

nice Pinot, opened bottle and let sit for about 1 hour. On the nose there was Raspberries. On the palate the wine had a nice freshness, red fruit, raspberries and red plums. Near the end of the bottle a bit of fakeness was evident. Would have scored higher, if not for that.

A nice bottle of wine that went well with fried chicken. nose was very clean with a hint of ethanol. On the palate the minerality was nice, green apples a bit of peach. not sweet, but not dry. This was how I like my Rieslings

opened and let sit for about 90 minutes. Poured into glasses and let sit for another 20. Nice nose of eucalyptus, and cherries. On the palate the wine is nice. I think it has a lot of time left on it.

popped and poured. Let sit in the glass about 10 minutes before first glass. Nose was light, raspberries, and minerals. On the palate the minerality outshined the fruit. Had the wine with perogies. I can see where people say this wine needs food.

opened and decanted about 15 minutes before first glass, had with reheated prime rib. Nose of Black cherries with a touch of vanilla. On the palate the wine had a nice flavor. I liked it, reminded me of a clos-du-val, but my wife didn't like the flavor profile.
