    April 29, 2017 - LA Rookies Old v New World Pinot Dinner (South Pasadena): Plush nose, red fruits, big mid palate, well balanced, well-integrated tannins. Really nice and one of my favorites of the night.

    June 16, 2016 - This wine had some serious acid for about the first 2-3 hours. IMO, NOT ready to drink, or at least do what I didn't do -- don't just bottle decant, DECANT this wine. I'm sure it would probably have been a slightly better experience, although this wine is going to be very good in a couple of years. The acidity at first burned your tongue to the point that you had no idea what it had to offer. Because of this, it was challenging when served with an herbed pork loin. The flavors went well and the acidity wasn't so bad with the food. Slightly tart red raspberry souffle. The wine is a little earthy in the middle, JUST a bit, just enough to remind you that this is pinot from the mothership. The finish is darker, a little bit brambly, but overall this wine is actually quite a luscious offering compared to some of the wines from this region that I've had. Probably one of my best Burgundies in recent years, and yes I know that compared to what is out there, I've only touched the tip of the iceberg. Still a nice wine though. I give it about 5 years before it start a downward descent, but it still has quite a bit of life left in it.

    February 24, 2015 - For a $50 Beaune Burgundy, I actually expected.....well, perhaps a real cork for starters. This one was a short, plastic cork. Besides through the SEAL, I cannot understand how else this one is supposed to oxidize slowly although there has to be some science behind it. Wine was poured into the glass -- very light bodied dusty red. The nose was raspberry, red cherry, a little mint. The front of the palate was tart raspberry pie with a hint of bramble. Acidic front....VERY acidic until about 30 minutes after cork pop (or with food). The mid-palate is a little dark red berry, quite luscious and syrup-y. The finish has a hint of nitrogen, but is squished out by the berry and tannin. A very enjoyable wine. The only way I'd reall improve with this wine is to let it sit and age 3-4 more years to see if that acidity opens up something else on the front. It is a 91 now, but I am giving a rating of NR today as I feel that the front could be way more complex and layered than what it appeared to be tonight. Drink 2016-2022.
