    April 8, 2019 - Did not really care for it, for the same reason I don't like Brunellos.

    November 28, 2018 - Good RRV pinot that I believe needs a few more years to peak. Decanted for about 30 minutes. Nice flavors initially, super bright but without any significant depth early on. I don't think this wine hit it's sweet spot until the end of the evening. Last glass, after 3 hours in decanter, has markedly evolved. Still young red predominance on the nose, and mix of both bright and old, deeper fruit on the palate. Finish is super long at this point and has hints of dark cherry pie, over-ripe strawberries and kirsch. At this point fantastic. 87 points on opening, 91 last glass. Next bottle 2021+

    October 23, 2018 - Very aromatic. Lots of sweet fruit aromas with some underbrush. Lovely elegant and velvety expression of Russian River Pinot. Very long finish. Impressive. 13.5% abv.

    July 4, 2018 - Brought to a wine dinner last night and it was marvelous. Opened right away with a lovely aroma and had cherry cola notes and spice box on the palate. I got a hint of black cherry and raspberry as well. Nice bottle and it went down easily. My lone bottle of this vintage.

  • joseph120 Does not like this wine:

    December 2, 2017 - Didn't like the finish on this bottle. Maybe it was starting to go bad, or just part of the aging. Finish was european earthy style, reminding me of a tawny port. Have always liked this producer's PN's in the past - we'll see how my remaining 2 bottles taste.
