    December 31, 2014 - 14.0% alcohol. Blood red color with very little orange at the rim. The nose is packed wih red fruits, such as cherry and raspberry, as well as a touch of pinot funk. He palate displays bright red fruit and mineral notes. On the palate, this wine is light-bodied with high acidity, and a touch of drying tannins on he finish. Overall, this is silky on the palate with red-fruit and vibrant acidity. It paired very well with bacon and pea risotto for New Year's Eve.

    January 14, 2014 - Paired perfectly with Tuna Nicoise. Very good primary "Pinosity" (Vanessa's" terminology.). Tart Cherry , Wild Strawberry notes, and a good finish. Acidity is good , so it may evolve further, but after 10 years I doubt it. Ellen, the hypertaster, detected a hint of Brett, which I didn't.

    January 29, 2013 - Opened this after finishing a very pretty 2010 Drouhin Chorey-les-Beaune, and at first I was a bit overwhelmed with the ripeness on the nose, and the much bigger palate presence. But a little air does this good, loaded with rich, intense dried dark cherry, beautiful acidity, some very fine tannins, just a hint of orange peel and black tea, juicy and flavorful, while remaining well balanced. A fine example of California Pinot.

    December 10, 2012 - After about an hour open, it really started to shine showing elegant dark cherry and spice notes. Very nice.

    July 13, 2012 - Silky. Light black fruit in total harmony. Touch of light smoke on the finish. Perfect acidity. Can I get this in an IV.
