August 29, 2021 - Strawberry perfume with herb and alcohol notes impresses the olfactory sense. Entry is so soft sensory essence of strawberry with dry fruit tea finish perfectly balanced by natural acid. In the bottle 10 years - the first impression is emphatic fruit aromatics and sweet fruit on the tongue.
Aged Pinot [Any wine] is not to all tastes. At a certain age, fruit becomes essence of fruit, dried memories of ripe grapes, a hint or more of maderization can please or offend.
It would be instructive to taste this 2010 with a 10 year old Pommard or Volnay (curious about price comparison), I would bet place my bet on the Beaux Freres Upper Terrace.
January 6, 2021 - Very disappointing. Has not aged as well as the regular BF. Very light color, short finish.
September 3, 2019 - Celebrating my birthday with family at The Girl and the Fig in Sonoma. Excellent pinot. Dark red in color. Floral and cigar box nose. In the mouth, dark cherry, mushroom and some cola-like nuances. Herbs lurk in the background. Drinking well now, but still young.
August 18, 2019 - Nice wine but too pricey
September 18, 2018 - Great, but should hold till 2021
August 25, 2018 - Strawberry and desert sage aromas. Strawberry flavor. Light, dry body.
January 21, 2017 - Decanted two hours. Not ready yet. Wait five years. Earthy and pretty, but still wound up.
