    June 7, 2020 - I was very disappointed in early bottle of this wine and just sort of used them up for a while. This is the second to last bottle and was very good.....on the deep/dark end of the PN scale. I is also now worth the price point. I had 2020 down as the last year of drink window for this one......however, it will likely hang on for a while longer.

    Acid-driven, lighter style of Pinot, but with plenty of flavor. Tart, with citrus and cherry, perhaps rhubarb. I appreciate this style and enjoyed it very much - those who prefer a richer style will probably not find this very compelling.

    October 20, 2018 - reddish maroon clear. Powerful mint and pine sap along with subtle damp earth aromas. Sweet herbal flavors weave in and out of ripe but tart cherry and blood orange as the finish lingers on and on. great stuff here and in peak form

    November 23, 2014 - Nice red fruit and a compote of sour red cherry and crushed red raspberries. Definite minerality lurking underneath. Nice spice presence with cinnamon and other baking spices. A little coy and restrained overall but will certainly develop a bit more over time.
