    June 5, 2021 - Forest floor and cherry on the nose. Dark fruits, acidity, great texture and integration on palate with fine tannins. Expect this will continue to drink well for easily another 3-5 years++.

    December 14, 2015 - Kiremit rengine dönüşümü başlayan yakut renginde.
    Önde is ,katran, kahve gibi füme meşe notaları ile örtülü çilek/ahududu reçeli, tatlı baharat , animal ,arkada ise hafif komleksite katan uçar asit ve orman tabanı notları mevcut. Orta gövdeli, yumuşak kadifemsi dokusu ile akıcı. Damakta üzümün karakterini yansıtan bir tatlımsılık ile birlikte dengeli ,yuvarlak tanenlerine eşlik eden orta üstü asit ile yeterince fresh. Meyve fıçıyı hala kaldıracak güçte .Damaktan ziyade, orta uzunluktaki yine dengeli bitiminde mineral düşündüren hafif bir tuzlumsuktan bahsedilebilir . 2015 217+
    Bu şarap bence Türkiye'de üretilen Pinot Noir'in iyi örneklerinin yıllandıkça, nasıl bir gelişme gösterebileceğine dair ipuçları taşıyor.

    June 5, 2015 - Three years since I last had this wine. It's holding up surprisingly well. The color is fading a bit to a ruby/garnet mix, and the fruit is also fading a bit. Raspberry, cherry, bramble, clove, smoke, menthol, licorice, earth on the nose and palate. Great acidity, texture and some nice, smooth tannins. The finish of cherry and spice lingers a long time. A well-made wine.

    November 29, 2014 - This wine was consumed as PNP. It started out "tight", a bit sharp, a modest floral notes in its nose. However, over the course of a few hours, it really opened up into a lovely pinot: wonderful cherry and fruit flavors, nice light mouth feel, and smooth finish.

    May 26, 2014 - Nice soft Pinot Noir, full finish, drinking nicely now. Cherry, raspberry and enough backbone to make this a well balanced wine.

    February 22, 2014 - Nice California Pinot Noir. Soft tannins and plentiful fruit make this a crowd pleaser. I would say this is right to drink now but no rush, it is good for a while.

    nose - initially lots of violets and then sweet fruit, strawberries and after a while some leather.
    lovely texture, quite meaty
    t. Sweetness touch of leather meat savoury finish
    carries alcohol well
    some length
    sl drying finish
    love this

    November 15, 2013 - Consumed over 2 days, note from day 2. Nose: Medium expressiveness, dominated by sweet/ripe fruit - rock candy & grape Jolly Rancher, with undertones of cinnamon, and spice. Palate: Medium bodied, spicy blue and red fruit attack - not as sweet as the nose suggests, nice mid-palate lift, sweetness and spice dominate the back-end. Finish: Medium-plus sense of ripe red and blue fruit and spice. My last of of 4 bottles consumed over the past 24 months - this is showing as good or better than any.
