    August 24, 2018 - Still good. Though Brian's high-octane style is no longer what I generally prefer in Pinot Noir, I nevertheless appreciated and enjoyed this, and much preferred it vs. his Durell Vineyard from the same vintage. The fruit has decreased from its high intensity earlier in its life, but this still remained balanced, flavorful, and interesting. Of all of the Loring Pinot Noirs I've tried thus far from the 2010 and 2011 vintages, Rosella's has been my favorite. Looking at my previous notes, I preferred 2011 to 2010 by a decent margin. Surprisingly good yet on day 2 and into day 3. 90-91.

    May 14, 2016 - Though fruit-forward, had good balance. Very well-received by a group at dinner. As JLGNML noted, it's in a good place now.
