    October 11, 2018 - Middle of the road well made new world Pinot. Can probably age for at least another five years

    March 13, 2018 - Light color but excellent nose. Good mouth feel. Slight bricking color on edges. Earthy nose. Cherry spice palette. Nice.

    November 20, 2017 - Excellent balance however, lacks distinctive flavor elements even though retaining the Trenton "cola" signature. Drunk over 2 nights. Average finish. This has been rated higher than the 2013 in the press but in comparisons since issue, I've always liked the 2013 much better. Score is based on NOW, has shown more potential in past bottles. Enjoyable, not notable.

    October 24, 2017 - Read my note of 10/2/15. Not a lot has changed ... still wonderful Trenton nose. Medium body, color, excellent acidity. Right now ... somewhat of a short finish relative to other vintages (surprising because 2012 is my favorite recent vintage in CA pinot ... it isn't a 2005 burgundy type vintage but it is very good). I'm going to leave the score alone, particularly since I'm drinking over 2 nights, did not decant tonight. This is still the lesser of recent vintages ... 2007 to 2013.

    December 20, 2016 - My notes of 8/7/16 still Apply. This is up in the 96-97 range now.
    For me, the ultimate praise for a wine is if you'd buy more. I just did!
