July 1, 2013 - What a wonderful Pinot. Bright fruit of cherries and cedar. Nice finish. Drinking very well. Wish I had more.
December 18, 2012 - Such a luscious. glorious pinot - absolutely perfect. We loved visiting the funky little winery and even more are loving the wine we bought there!
September 17, 2012 - Soft, fully integrated red berries with a little touch of cherry.
September 28, 2011 - A fascinatingly dark combination of chocolate, caramel, and coffee beans appears on the nose. Leather and spice combine with concentrated berry preserves in a deep, captivating mélange of dark fruit and earth.
Rich and plush on the palate, this wine is drenched in plumy tones and loads of kitchen spice. Caramel and a combination of cloves, cinnamon, and allspice mix with dark berries and an Old World inspired earthiness, reminiscent of leather and dust. This is a big wine, although it remains in perfect balance, with exceptionally precise acidity and a leveling terroir.

August 25, 2011 - Thin red color typical of lots of Pinot Noir - lots of nice legs. Delicate oaky vanilla initially on the nose followed by blackberry. Notes of cherry and raspberry on the tongue - neither are overwhelming. The thinness of the color continues onto the palate. Dried cranberry and cherry even. Nice Pinot - perhaps drinking it a little too chilled as it seems to lack some structure and acidity.
March 20, 2011 - Drinking right now at such a young age. No tannins to speak of. Decent wine which probably won't age much.
