    October 9, 2019 - Opened by Lostverse. This had been opened a week earlier. An earthy wine with cherry notes. Tried it again the next day and it had fallen apart. 89 points when I first tried it and likely higher when first opened.

    September 29, 2019 - Pretty meh. Wish I had drunk it up sooner. I really dislike 2011 California Pinots.

    August 17, 2019 - tasted like a swashbuckling beaujolais...little fruit left, dried cranberries, tough of menthol, week-old orange peel

    May 31, 2019 - Shy emerging nose of redwood, oyster mushrooms, strawberries, with a hint of violets. Focused sweet and sour fruit on the palate, with a vibrant acid frame, echoing acid finish.
