    October 6, 2020 - Just great. Right out of the bottle. Perfect balance. Sadly my last bottle I fear.

    January 22, 2017 - Served with grilled pork tenderloin. The plum colored Pinot opened nicely although it was somewhat one dimensional. In fairness the bottle I had was the Taverna so I may have mis-categorized the wine.

    December 10, 2016 - Cherry and earth on the nose. Close to medium bodied. Nice red cherry notes upfront, backed with some hints of blackfruit, tart red cherry and cranberry. Solid, but pretty basic mix for a fruit profile. Adds a bit of acidity, light spice notes and some mineral qualities on the finish. Overall, as easy drinking pinot noir with just enough structure to make it interesting, but for the money, there are similar wines of superior complexity available. This is designed to be drunk upon release and should be drunk in the next year or so before it starts to decline.

    November 26, 2016 - Bright color. Nose: violet, flower bed (earth) cranberry and bright cherry. Maybe a hint of oak peeking through underneath. Cranberry really coming through in the front end of the palate. Med bodied wine. Tasty. Long finish, great acidity. Probably has a couple more years left in the tank.
