    September 4, 2016 - Exceptional Pinot. Garnet hue, dark raspberry nose, smooth, evenly balanced, easy drinking wine, darker berry Pinot. Drank right out of the bottle-- terrific!

    December 28, 2014 - Popped and poured and this was rocking right away. Juicy red fruits, great acidity and nice length. Everyone commented how good it was. One more to consume and I would say it has a few good years ahead of it but it is singing right now.

    October 6, 2014 - Wow, lots of red fruit and bright, clean fruits. A little thin in the mouth perhaps, but it's all part of the experience. A little light for out grilled steak, but should be great with traditional Pinot foods.

    5/15/2015 Very definitely a lighter, brighter Pinot. Had it with Salmon this time and it rocked.

    March 25, 2013 - Opened not decanted. I will cram all my superlatives at the beginning of this note for those with ADD: wow, awesome, friggin' great. After working through a 13 year old barolo, this was a rush of fresh, clean and dark black cherry tastes that just washed away those Piedmont dried fruit notes. On the entry: a sweetness that morphs to sour cherry, that morphs to a tangy citrus finish. I usually complain about heat, but while it is there, its like "who cares?", pour some more wine. Seriously, this is terrific. Very Good.
