    February 19, 2022 - Nice bottle. Some maturity, but still rather primary and vigorous. Good, but no fireworks.

    September 18, 2021 - This was quite nice. Bright, cherries, hint of orange, not a lot of earth, but plenty of verve. I expected more from this given the price, but it's a very nice Pinot.

    June 27, 2021 - Delicious! Perfect Saturday evening pinot to pair with grilled tuna steak. No signs of age-based decline in this 10 yr old pinot, either in color or taste, so not seeing any urgency to open these if you have some that are well-cellared. Medium-bodied raspberry and tart cherry, with a mouthwatering beam of acidity on the finish (which helps this pair well with dinner).

    January 9, 2020 - Did not really enjoy the last bottle. A year later, this one is much better. Ruby red color. Sour cherry, cranberry, spice and raspberry aromas. the last bottle showed candied cherry fruit, none of that is noted this time. sour cherry, cranberry, spice flavors. Medium body with a smooth finish. Has good acidity.

    September 6, 2019 - Light red in color. Almost translucent. 13% ABV. Pretty nose of red fruits, cloves, baking spices and pine needles. Medium body with medium acidity. Elegant and delicate. Cherry, cranberry, blood orange and earth on the palate. Medium length on the finish. Very good Pinot Noir that only pales when compared to some of the other single vineyard designates in the Rivers-Marie lineup. Best over the next 1-2 years.
