November 5, 2019 - Intriguing and complex. Damp earth, fungi, toasty oak and vanilla lift from the glass while sweet cherry and mint, blanketed in velvety milk chocolate, strawberry and hints of white pepper coat the mouth in a rich and perfectly balanced, long finish. Delicious right now, and a great qpr @ $33/bottle from the winery.
June 21, 2019 - Much better than my notes from almost 2 years ago. Seems to be in the sweet spot. Substantial, full bodied (for pinot), acids under control and good flavors and finish. I really enjoyed this and it restores my faith in my original enthusiasm for PH.
November 11, 2017 - Love the texture and body of this unfiltered wine.
August 4, 2017 - Good, balanced and nice drinking, but not what I was hoping for. Good weeknight stuff, but not special occasion stuff.
June 4, 2017 - We have had this bottle many times and have always rated it very highly. This one tasted like the bottom of the barrel that had been oxidized prior to bottling or something. The aroma was spot on, but it was full of sediment and even white flakes. We are huge fans of unfiltered wine, but it was so excessive we had to throw 1/4 of the bottle out.
March 20, 2017 - Interesting sappy notes and Dijonnais qualities linger behind a vibrant red fruit character that seems to typify the house style. Rock solid.
February 10, 2017 - Wonderful red cherry fruit and great balance
November 27, 2016 - Quite enjoyable now, with nothing but positive aging potential. Wonderful aroma, med body. Well balanced acid and tannin-Strawberry notes carries with a bit of pepper and spice. Love this! Wish I had more!!!!
April 29, 2016 - Good solid Pinot.
