    October 27, 2017 - Very similar to the 2007 and 2009 RRV Ladd Pinots from the BerserkerDay pack. That is, fresh and lively Cali Pinot on the acid-driven side. Really enjoyed this, though I very slightly preferred the two others. This is the kind of Cali Pinot I can really embrace.

    December 11, 2016 - I was a little excited and pulled this forgetting it was my last bottle. We were doing shrimp Thai curry at home and this just seemed like a perfect fit. Sweet dried strawberry and lots of herbal niceties. A smack of white pepper and oak/stem at the finish. Tannins are fully resolved.

    November 6, 2016 - Good stuff. Tart cherry yet bright with stemmy goodness.

    September 15, 2015 - Showing some browning on the fringe. Somewhat cloudy. Earthy nose. Tart cherry, salinity on the palate. Very bright finish with a touch of aspartame like sweetness.

    Handling its years of age very well.

    October 11, 2014 - Decanted one hour. Hazy purple in color, with lifting cherry, strawberry, and wet earth aromas. The palate exhibits red cherry, blackberry, black tea, tilled soil, and spice notes. Nice texture and medium-plus finish.
