    October 21, 2018 - Perhaps a little past prime, but still light and enjoyable. Surprisingly took 2-3 hours to open up and show its balance, beginning with too much fruit. Overall a nice West-coast Pinot for guests use to US Noir. Enjoy now, cheers.

    November 7, 2017 - Not much difference in 12 months - a tribute to screw cap?

    Moderate fruit, acceptable+

    September 24, 2016 - what a difference a bottle makes. My last bottle must've been a bad cork. Wait, there's no cork...Medium body, nice.

    August 2, 2016 - Carbuncle colour, mild barnyard aromas. Mid-weight, mid-length, fair fruit - cherries and coffee, mild acidity

    Looking at all these temperate characteristics, I wonder if I should downrate it - it sounds more anodyne than it was. But it was drunk at 35000 feet, so allowing for that I'll stick with 87

    July 19, 2016 - Yes, 2011 was rough in Oregon. This was especially rough. Down the sink.
