    August 11, 2019 - This was an OK Pinot, but did not knock my socks off an any way. It was pleasant tasting but that is about it. Short dry finish. A the price point that Ponzi is at, there are many other Pinots I would go to first.

    July 7, 2019 - Good structure and ripe black cherry fruit flavors with a touch of spice and dried herbs. Subtle aromas of lavender and rosemary. A bit hollow mid palate. A bit past its prime.

    June 16, 2019 - A little over a year since I last tasted this wine. Its still elegant, flavorful and complex; everything youd expect and hoped to find in a high end Oregon Pinot Noir. Its beginning to show a touch of decline but so what, its still makes for wonderful drinking. If I had anymore they wouldnt be any better than this one; but not an issue as this my last bottle.

    September 23, 2017 - This is a tough wine to rate because it is clearly very well made, but it is really anonymous among $40-60 new world pinot and a bit of a dubious value. Bright and fruit driven, nice integration of new oak, decent structure... could this be from the Santa Rita Hills, Russian River, Sonoma, Yarra Valley? I liked it and wouldn't be unhappy to have it again, but the most memorable characteristic is somewhere between "good" and "correct".

    April 15, 2017 - I always really liked Ponzi Pinots. I have given some of the Reserves scores from 93 to 95, which in retrospect seem to be an overrating. They've always been strong on the side of elegance, but really weren't there in the "burst of flavor" characteristics. This on has it all, but not to the extent of a mid 90's rating, yet to my memory, it is as good or better than any other Ponzi Reserve that I've ever had
