    September 4, 2021 - Elegantly crafted Pinot. This feel like going to a party where everything is just so. Cherries are balanced. Some garrique is there. HdP gives a late body appearance and acidity cleanses the palate with fruit tannins in particular that clean up everything. It is a fairly fruit centered wine with little else. I kind of want a little more.

    But here we are at 9 years and I get little to no secondary nuances. The wine has verve and vibrancy. I would miss the vintage in a blind. I like the wine very much, but this will remain youthful for years

    July 22, 2021 - This fell flat for me especially considering the price and the 7 years of storage. It was either in a closed phase, over the hill or spoiled - not sure which. But the flavor profile was dull and and dusty.

    November 22, 2018 - Very mellow Pinot. This wine has a silky feel on your mouth, wet stone and red cherry on the nose and a nice tart cranberry on the tongue. I don't think it will benefit from more aging. In fact, it may be past its prime already.

    November 22, 2018 - Very delicate elegant pinot a great pairing with turkey and thanksgiving dinner. Deep aromas of berries, cola and leather on the nose. On the palate tart berries, cola with a long palate cleansing finish.
