    January 11, 2019 - Dark cherry color. Smoke and frruit Lovely so cal Pinot noir. Served w lamb. Would have added more notes but we finished too fast. We have another bottle and feel we could go at least another year on this.

    December 14, 2018 - Deep garnet in color. Floral nose. Nicely balanced with cherry, raspberry and a hint of cola on the palate. Light acidity. This is likely at peak drinking window. Will last a few more years but will not likely improve. Served with cheese, crackers and bacon wrapped dates.

    November 25, 2018 - 1:30 decant. Tight at open. Softened nicely. Still has life left if you want to hold 12-18 months.

    November 23, 2018 - An excellent Pinot Noir but not "Out of this World". For a wine that is fetching close to the $100 point I think I have the right to expect a bit more but that being said this wine did not disappoint. Solid red fruit and very polished on the palate it held up well but was equalled by other central coast Pinots in cluding an Au Bon Climat costing nearly half the price. Cost isn't everything for sure but it is worth mentioning :-)
