    December 23, 2021 - Definitely not past its prime unless you have not been storing your wine properly. This is drinking beautifully right now with lots of power and finesse still. The only Pinot that can stand up to a steak IMHO. Almost syrah like in nature with extracted blackberry, mocha and black tea notes.

    November 4, 2021 - Definitely past it’s prime. Very high alcohol taste. Reminiscent of cough syrup.

  • KJBC Does not like this wine: 87 points

    April 2, 2021 - Just a bit past the tasting window (have so far had luck with that)
    Colour very deep ruby guessing something blended here
    Cherries and herbs on the nose
    Medium activity
    noticeably high alcohol not balanced (label says 14.7%)
    Seems off dry with an aftertaste of chocolate (sadly reminds me of Apothic although I do prefer it to Apothic)
    Sour cherries hot alcohol with a chocolate finish
    Maybe it will be better with some food
    For the money would prefer many other wines Pinot noir or otherwise; particularly some i have had from Beaune

    March 23, 2021 - Very dense Pinot. Dark ruby color matches it's flavor density. While a rich tasting wine, it is overly sweet and heavy that overpowers Pinot's normal delicacy and refinement.

    October 11, 2020 - PNP, rich, concentrated dark raspberry, currants, blueberry, some sweetness, smooth finish.
