    December 25, 2017 - Lovely wine. Sour cherry note. Light and elegant Pinot. Bright strawberries at the end of a rather long finish. Unfortunately broke the cork in the bottle so had to contend with cork bits. Ugh

    October 13, 2017 - One was good--a little taught at first but opened up to a decent, if not excellent pinot with some time in the glass.

    The other bottle was flawed, which was expected (we got a discount on the wines because the corks were irregular and there was a lot of bottle variation).

    September 10, 2017 - Past it's drinking window. Fruit dissipated, acidic and bitter. Down the drain.

    April 29, 2017 - Cork is longer then normal one, about the length of those of Bordeaux Grand Cru, Joseph Phelps, Opus One. Was able to pull out fully using old wine opener. Crimson color on cork with white crystal
    Color: transparent dark red with light yellow rhim = 4
    Nose: toast and floral note = 3.5
    Taste: mostly black fruit, some sweetness, more open up after half hour decant, with some coffee favor. Smooth but firm tanin = 4
    Finish: medium to long finish = 4
