    July 18, 2021 - I like it. Elegant structure and flavor profile. A Burgundian feel — in fact, lighter than a premier cru Volnay I tasted last night. Pleasing flavors of red cherries and roasted sesame oil. Drink or hold.

    July 3, 2021 - Quite Burgundy-like, but a little more pebbery and dark. Actually more Baden-like than Sonoma-like on the nose. Very smooth and elegant. Fully mature now. Great bottle.

    May 2, 2020 - Coravined one glass to pair with a medium rare rib eye. At the 30 min mark, an elegant nose of cherry and rich cola waft with an even strength portending a wine in mid-stride. The smooth mouthfeel melts into wonderful meaty notes of apple and dark cherries gliding into a long savory finish and full-body deliciously balancing the tasty rib-eye. As pairings go it is an enjoyable change of pace versus the more traditional Napa Cab. No question to it age-worthiness, this wine is in a great place right now with many more years to run. A wine in full.

    March 7, 2020 - The 2010 was popped and poured immediately following the ‘11 Sonoma Coast and drank fabulously. Deep, rich black raspberry nose, meaty full-body mouthfeel with rich texture of dark fruit flavor. This wine showed a measured strength and structure that was a joy to drink. Everything about this wine was a joy to drink: a great bouquet on the nose, full-body and smooth enjoyment on the palate and a nice long savory finish. Fantastic at 10 years, there was so much in this pour that I would have no problem checking in on this beauty at another 5 or 10 year interval.
