Community Tasting Notes 6

    March 23, 2019 - A thinly extracted garnet color. A nice color, but quite transparent. After a few hours open it's developed a little forest floor funk, but primarily acid driven red fruits. Good, but not enough action to match the meal we paired with.

    March 2, 2019 - Transparent ruby to garnet color. Aromas of pomegranate, strawberry shortcake, lemon, orange peel, fennel, and black tea. Light to medium body, medium acid and finish, and flavors of high toned red fruits, lemon, orange peel, black tea, and a touch of spice. Enjoyable young pinot in a feminine style that I'm digging.

    February 11, 2019 - Very interesting Pinot. Had something that I wasn’t able to put my finger on. But enjoyed.

    January 26, 2019 - Six months after my first bottle - I think this has markedly improved. Nice cherry and red fruit with enough acidity to balance.

    October 22, 2018 - For those who want pinot noir to be like Sophia Loren, this one was like Twiggy. Fruity, but the fruit is pomegranate and rhubarb, lean and lifted, but with an austere charm of its own. I'm not sure I'd expect any development. Good with food.
