    January 5, 2022 - Oregon 2012 at the office: Medium colour. It has clear red and dark fuits with a fine balance for the vintage. Some floral and underbrush notes. Well made with a burgundian touch. Drinks fine now but could possibly also improve with more mature notes in the future.

    December 31, 2021 - This is really singing - the violet on the nose is prevalent and red fruits really show. Very very nice.

    December 25, 2021 - Delightful again. Notes much the same as last time in terms of flavor, but I thought this bottle had quite a long finish which I did not note last time.

    December 2, 2021 - Drinking extremely well. Reflects the ripe vintage, but still very balanced. No sign of decline, could sit for a few more years.

    October 19, 2021 - Needs a bit of air, then it really turns up. Plenty of red berries, hitting the Pinot nerve, sous bois here, great harmony. A point to me, could go on.
