    April 1, 2021 - Hoo-wee this is nice. I’m loving the just-right beam of tartness that runs through the delectable cherry and early-ripe raspberry flavors. The cherry-tartness lasts in the back of the mouth and is ... mouthwatering. So many California pinots have similar flavors (gobs) but not the substance, not the complementary tartness/acidity/structure, that this has. As for aging, this is 10 years old, yet still seems young. Bottle open for nearly 3 hours and it’s only getting better! Drinking beautifully now but no hurry.

    February 7, 2019 - Everything is really nice about this wine but it channels producer (wiemakinng style) and not vineyard(terroir). Thomas can make this out of any vineyard in CA with just slight variation. So the difference between single vineyard and Sonoma coast is the step up in intensity of the wine . I like it, but I can see myself if getting bored of samething if I was drinking my RM wines faster. So for myself, the message is get couple each year bu no more .

    July 15, 2018 - Red berry, earth and red cherry notes on the nose. Medium bodied (14.1% ABV) with red cherry upfront and some lite red raspberry coming in through the middle providing extra depth. Good acidity in the background, but feels very well integrated at this stage. There's enough structure to balance the fruit and provide very good balance between the more open and more tart fruit notes. Light spices and lightly tart red cherry/pomegranate notes towards the finish. Has just a touch of that orange peel/spice/forest floor quality on the finish that Rivers-Marie pinot show so well. I think some of the more recent vintages from this site showed slightly more complexity and depth. Felt like this wine was drinking at peak/close to it but should be able to hold this level for another couple of years.
