    May 9, 2021 - This is aging well and I don't think it is at peak yet. Glad I waited till now to try the first bottle. Vibrant red with faint translucence. Lovely, aromatic nose of strawberries and rhubarb. Lush, yet precise fruit. Strawberry, bit of black cherry and raspberry. Fine tannins, great acidity and balance. Finishes long, spicy and dark fruited. May need 3 to 5 years more to peak. We finished the bottle far too soon with arctic char and roast potatoes.

  • Wineguy1968 Does not like this wine:

    November 29, 2019 - Unfortunately I don’t think this is aging well. Year plus on from last taste and this has a faded fruit pallet but tannin is still strong putting it out of balance. Little bit of earthy barnyard funk coming through. Others at thanksgiving agreed...not the best showing especially compared to the 2010 Klopp we tasted next to it.

    May 21, 2018 - Really big and delicious Pinot. Great complexity. Spice and dark red fruit. Blackberries and pepper with a touch of sage. It’s expensive which makes feel like it’s slightly overpriced. But it’s very good

    April 7, 2018 - I liked this. Dark color and medium weight. Dark cherry, Asian spices. tannin still present on the finish which is surprising at this point.
