    May 13, 2022 - Tart cranberry, juicy cherry and lifted notes of orange rind and spice. Great with food.

    April 1, 2022 - Another excellent aged RM pinot noir. I only discovered RM a couple years ago but since then I’ve been able to drink many of their wines - mostly Pinots and chardonnays - - going back to 2008. The only disappointing RM bottle I’ve had was a 2011 Napa Cab. This Occidental Vineyard pinot noir wasn’t as great as the 2011 Silver Eagle Vineyard pinot but it was still super. I really like the tartness of the strawberry and raspberry/cherry flavors, yet also the purity of fruit and the endless length of the finish. If you’re a fan of the style, then I expect you’ll find this wine still drinking well for several years to come.

    January 1, 2022 - Prior bottle was 5 and a quarter years ago and the wine continues to show quite well. Earth red cherry, floral and spice notes on the nose. Medium bodied with a mix of brighter red cherry and more rounded red cherry upfront; impressive that it has retained the brightness over this length of time. Mid-body seems slightly deeper than previously, with the raspberry offset with lighter strawberry notes. Cranberry, tart cherry, earth and spices on the back and through the finish. Overall, slightly less elegant and balanced than it was five years ago, but holding up quite well and should be rewarding over the next few years.

    January 21, 2021 - Wow, excellent wine and still quite young even at 9.5 years old. Lots of floral red fruit, some tinges of orange, plenty of earth that changes to spices and back. Light yet deep. Continued to open up over hours and the few drops left in the bottle the next day were still smelling great.

    November 1, 2020 - This is beautiful. Delicious cherry & strawberry fruit, orange rind, spices, and earth. Light side, but lots of flavor. Great acidity with a long lingering finish.
