Much better this time. Enjoyed with Argentinian steaks and whatnot at 943. Nice fruit/acid balance with red fruits and minerality (not a word?). I am not getting the dark fruits or chocolate that others got although it opened some over the course of an hour.

Surprisingly nice cheap burg, with some good acidity which appears to have mellowed over time and yielded a little fruit. Not bad food wine at all.

Drank at the tail end of a sunday night while watching limitless with friends. A weird gamey foot funk was pervasive. The cork may have been TCA'd. Or maybe I was THC'd?

Much better than I recalled. Like a high-end Beaujolais with a little less fruit. Great smell of funk and flowers, decent red fruits. Could drink this all night. Oh, and Natalie Portman is fit!

Drank at Matyson with their 4 course dinner. Amazing meal. Wine was good, but overrextracted. Tis the style and 2007 tilts that way.

A wine consumed in earnest after too many before it. Still recall it fondly.

Well-balanced wine. A bit less fruit than prior bottles, but that might be an illusion brought on by Han Dynasty's pot shrimp which was pungent enough to eviscerate a dental dam. Not that I've tested this...

Full-bodied jammy fruit with a little earth. Really nothing special,

Thoroughly enjoyed on one of the last nights of Thali Tuesday at Bindi. Have one more and am tempted to repeat the experience.

A real humdinger! Nice with slow cooked beef. Didn't need a long decant to open up once double decanted. Drink now.

Drank on the hotel porch at Asbury Park. Good times.

Foolishly drank during neighbor dinner without a full decant just through vinturi. There is so much promise here.

There is nowhere else for this to go but down. Very very nice lighter fruits with a bit of cream. Cherries n' cream if you will.

Maybe it was the little bottle syndrome (drank from 375ml) but this was really brittle and disappointing. So long, I held you too long...

Drank with sausages off the grill during monthly Neighbor meeting. Nice fruity rusticness, I am a fan.

Another Asbury Park red. Enjoyable, but certainly on the decline.

I believe this is one of the wines we had at Taka in Asbury Park. Remember it fondly. Cellar husbandry is not my thing.

dumb opening decision, well too befuddled to enjoy. Why is it always the bubbly that I go to in these moments?

Not bad, a little citrusy melon thing going on and some acid and muskiness. Pretty refreshing. Overall an OK purchase

Drank one and returned the lot. Too much oak and some unpleasant petrolness.

Very disapointing considering the positive reviews from the PA community. Thought it was good with sour cherries and a touch of earth, but certainly not exceptional. It opened a little and maybe it just needed more time. I have one more, but I don't think I will be buying more.

Bumping it up a notch. In addition to cherry cola I got some good earthy funk this time.

really, really nice. Wish I had taken better note, but it shared some new world and bordeux characteristics.

Much, much better. Pretty outstanding with brambley chocolate, vibrant red fruits and earthiness. Nice acidity so I nice pairing with pork.

Thin, had a very short drinking window then fell apart. A travesty at the asking price of $40, but merely acceptable at $13 on closeout.

Nice fruity Gamay. Had all the elements, candied cherries & raspberries, a hint of bananas, etc., but also a slight earthiness.

Nice and dry with some toast, but would like a little more buttery brioche which I had thought was present when I had this before. Still got some stamina left.

This is a big fan favorite. Pretty well balanced and lush without being over-the-top. Needs decanting+ time to open. I think this will get better. Would have liked a little more pepper and more acid, but at this price - who's complaining?

Drank at marigold kitchen whilst being amused by copious bousches. Lots of bubbles and not from the wine. The wine is still vibrant albeit a bit heavier than typical pinot, even for a RRV. Probably why it has lasted. There are the typical cherries and spice, but a good bit of earthiness and acidity to balance it out. Went better with chessey items and the pork than with lighter fare. Definitely a good wine for lounging and contemplating.

Had with pork and sweet potatos at the Junod's during G-mom's 90th. Nice green bell pepper and red fruits with a little earthiness. I liked the Old World style, but it quickly faded and was admittedly a little brittle. I don't know if this needs more time or is shutting down. Either way there are far better deals out there...

Had at Giorgio on Pine with friends towards the end of the meail. Decent acidity, OK fruit. I paid $19 and it wasn't worth it. I can't imagine paying $50 or whatever crazy number they are asking for this...

Maybe this was past its prime b/c it was extremely boring. While inoffensive, didn't do anything for anybody when we had it on Sat night with Meurig and Kristie.
