    September 18, 2018 - Popped and poured, medium-plus deep ruby, touch of bricking on the rim. Wonderful nose of assorted berry fruits, fresh root vegetables, cola, autumnal vegetation & just a hint of herbaceous spice. Moderate body. An absolute explosion of Pinot flavors on the palate, tastes like Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny combined with Eyrie South Block -- think red fruits galore combined with a silken mouthfeel, making this all too easy to drink. And although one might be inclined to chug away (who could blame??), there's also quite a bit to contemplate, including fresh herbs (dill, cilantro) and an impression of minerals which continues lingering through on the ridiculously persistent close.
    Grand Cru level Pinot, this is absolutely outstanding juice that's drinking in the zone!

    Quick comment: any/all remaining reductive notes are completely gone

    September 20, 2015 - Opened and decanted - was delicious immediately. Really developed over next 30 mins. - smokey; dark fruit; garnett color; after 60 mins - still excellent! Fully integrated, low tannins, harmonious. Matched this with grilled veal chops (rosemary, fresh garlic, olive oil) - was a little concerned about the match initially but what a perfect match! Wish I had more of this wine!

    May 29, 2015 - Dusty dark red fruits. Spice. Good balance for the warm year, but sense a little heat on the back end.

    March 24, 2015 - wow. This is wonderful right out of the gate. Dark blue fruits here with a steady flow of minerality and underbrush keeping the fruit in check and intriguing. Acidity is nice, not overblown. this could age some more, but I think it is in a great place.

    July 10, 2014 - As I am running out of older Oregon pinots, forced to drink this too young again. I must admit, this seems pretty awkward right now. Chunky and primary. Still have three more and I have now learned my lesson and sit on them a few years...
