    September 2, 2019 - Not sure what was going on with this bottle. I remember seeing this at a local wine shop for $275 as it was touted as greatness. Upon opening, the nose of funk was so strong I thought it was a bad bottle.

    After letting it open up, it was approachable but not good at all. Reminded me of a northern Rhône vs Pinot noir. There wasn’t much there to remark about.

    Tried again the next day and it did not improve at all. Very disappointing showing here. I had several bottles of the 2011 eola amity and they were all solid offerings.

    August 7, 2019 - This is starting to come around, and was drunk with much pleasure after about 1hr slow-ox in bottle. Fruit has become more savory with a subtle spiciness over layer upon layer of herb, mineral and soil tones. Silky and a touch lean on the palate with good energy from acid, but neither shrill nor hard. The tannin remains somewhat unresolved, but nicely fine grained. Has the stuffing to wait for those tertiary notes to come around, but quite pleasurable here at the front end of its drinking window.

    August 7, 2019 - should have followed my prior note....anyway this takes 5 hours to open and is very subtle...

    August 2, 2019 - One word description: COMPLEX.

    Drinks more like a Burgundy that a US domestic Pinot Noir. Complex flavors, fruit in the background, high acidity provides structure. Not a “crowd pleaser” style.
