    June 22, 2019 - A bigger wine, but still complex

    June 1, 2019 - I think there was a touch of tca or tce on the nose, very subtle but dampened the nose and made it hard to get much of anything. Palate was fine, lush red berries, ripe but not over extracted, warm baking spice, fair acidity, decent length and medium to med plus weight. I preferred this alone rather than with food as the CA style pinot is more of a stand alone imo. Seems to be at peak, drinking well now pnp, will hold on for a while but doubt will improve further.
