Nothing special. Fine with pork loin but fairly muted. Very light fruit.

Corked! Cork fell apart upon opening, otherwise everything else looked good. Was to be enjoyed for special friend occasion. Was stored in pristine conditions so huge bummer that we weren't able to enjoy it. Fortunately we had some great burgundy, Chablis and SQN to enjoy.

Popped and poured. Beautiful nose and drank very smoothly. In perfect drinking window now. Paired well with ribeye. Glad I have 2 more bottles and plan to enjoy them sooner than later.

WOTN. Up against 2008 Del Dotto Cab and was a bit more smooth and not as in your face cab. Paired with filet mignon from Capital Grille. Decanted for 45 minutes. Has much more time to go in cellar. Fortunately have 5 more bottles of it to enjoy!

Big nose and matching taste. Peppery. Decanted for 45 minutes before pairing it with filet mignon from Capital Grille. Love it! May be perfect time in drinking window.

Very good Oregon pinot with oily nose/taste. Not my favorite but clearly burgundian style.

Copper color. Nice nose. Leathery taste. Fruit disappearing fast so time to drink.

Beautiful wine. Should have waited a few hours after popping (or waited a few years to open) but we couldn't help ourselves.

Nice nose but no fruit left. Flat and beyond its peak time. Tried hours after tasting immediately after opening and didn't get better. Bummer!

Beautiful nose. Did not decant. May be in perfect drinking window now. Big, dark and oaky with some spice at end. Sadly this is my last bottle of this vintage.

Nice and not as big a cherry bomb as past. Preferred 2011 Walt Sierra Mar Pinot the same night.
