    February 15, 2020 - Ruby red with only slight signs of age. Cherries, smoky notes and forest floor and just a touch of oak. Big bouquet and before tasting makes you think this is going to be great! Med + acidity and med tannin! Long finish. Black cherry, red fruit, dried rose/flowers with smoky notes. This is a great wine with a full body that just makes you want to savor this wine. Would guess this was only 4-5 years old and has 10+ years at least! Would rate higher but think it still has upside and would try again in 3-5 years. Cheers!

    September 8, 2018 - Decanted for 30 minutes. Aromas of cola, sassafras, black cherry, dried strawberry and herb. Flavors of dried cherry, strawberry, mint, touch of prune and mushroom. Ends with dark cherry finish of 30 seconds. Bit better the last time I had it.

    May 27, 2018 - Fat, bold and powerful is how I would describe this one. It is both a pro and con to the wine, so much so that I think it is the result of stylistic preference. The wine pours a dark ruby color with plenty of sediment that is atypical of pinot noir, especially at such youth. On the nose, the wine is quite powerful, so much so that it is abrasive even. There is plenty of wood, blackberries, funk, sous bois, macerated cherries, spice and savory meats. Such a bouquet, as well as the alcoholic strength, is more redolent of a New World cab blend than a pinot. On the palate, the wine is equally thick, fat, powerful and tannic. Finesse, balance and complexity are nowhere to be seen. Flavors of unabashed black fruits, cherries, violets, olives, smoked meats, barnyard hay, and pepper are all there. Finish is of considerable length and truly boasts fruity sweetness and alcoholic heat. I appreciate the extremely high extraction levels in this wine. It is a remarkable effort. However, for me, it is just too hot and too one-dimensional. It lacks balance which for me, is key to a "classy" wine.
