    February 26, 2017 - Apparence rouge cramoisi, densité moyenne (surtout considerant le cepage).
    Nez ouvert, typique, sous-bois, champignon, fraise.
    En bouche continuité des odeurs, fraises écraisées, sucre d'erable, tanins souples, légère acidité. Beau specimen de PN du nouveaux monde sans excès. Excellent rapport QP.

    June 17, 2015 - Interesting Pinot. Great strong fruit Pinot nose, the appearance was not as thin as most. Had a lot of good Pinot qualities that would make this an excellent wine, but too much acidity to the point had a hard time pairing with food. This was on the verge of being an outstanding Pinot, but the acidity threw it a tad off balance. On one hand I wonder if it is too young (we did fully decant and let breather), but 5 1/2 yrs?

    August 5, 2014 - Comes off a little earthy at first but gets better and fruitier with time. Good.
