    June 7, 2019 - Savory red and blue fruits with a nice finish. Not fantastic, but a nice sipper. Nice to try a Pinot from the Southern Hemisphere.

    January 5, 2019 - From day two again. Viscus dark red color. Fresh red berry and menthol aromas. Strawberry and cherry jam flavors with some weight and decent acidity for food. Nice finish.

    July 20, 2018 - Bright and fruity aroma of dusty roadside berries with a shy floral note. Slightly hollow on the palate with a sweet fruit surround, acid there but not helping, slightly bitter aftertaste, disjointed. Perfectly drinkable, somewhat interesting. 50 + 16 + 15 + 7 = 88.

    March 13, 2017 - I agree with @mehalchin that in a blind taste this might pass for Grenache. Strawberry with a cherry core, almost like syrup in its density. Lots of smoke and pepper (even 24 hours after opening). It is better with some air than after first unscrewing the cap, when the pepper notes are seriously overwhelming. It is settling down a bit now, nudging my score up a notch. Solid, well-made, doesn't taste hot to me, but not something that is a wow. Cool-climate example of New World Pinot, on the syrupy and fruity side.

    February 25, 2017 - I like cold weather pinots but this lacked any pizazz. Light and crisp with an abundance of jammy fruit but nothing else of note.
