    January 11, 2021 - Good textbook OR Pinot. Good balance - subdued red fruit, vibrant acidity. Cherries, damp floor, mushrooms. Should reward a few more yrs of cellaring - acidity provides enough structure. Good potential for tertiaries emerging in a few more yrs?

    September 23, 2020 - Drank several nights ago as part of a vertical that included 2011 and 2013-2016. This screams Dundee Hills, with a cherry cough syrup character that I find very appealing and distinct. Herbs and cherries on the nose. Developing nicely. If you have a few bottles, it's worth drinking one now. But I also look forward to drinking my other two bottles in a few years. Drink or hold.

    May 25, 2019 - Similar to my last bottle two years ago. Delicate with cherries, cola, crunchy leaves, lots of almost-tart acidity that is vey well integrated. This drank best right out of the bottle - I opened it mid-morning and monitored it all day. It faded after a couple hours but mostly came back around by dinner time.

    This really sang with food (white beans and kale). Somehow it came more alive and seemed less reticent. Unfortunately for us we were down to our last glass by dinner.

    I was surprised that this didn’t have more tertiaries honestly. I have three more bottles and will probably wait a couple years before opening another. It’s in a good spot now, but I’d suggest drinking as a PnP (or perhaps on day 2) and with food. This has the acid to go for a while yet, so I’ll ride it out.

    December 7, 2018 - Lovely; nose with strawberry, red currant, hints of spice, very pure; palate is the definition of elegant pinot with a lovely finish; drinking very well now.

    March 24, 2018 - balance. But I don't like the finish. Not sure if it will develop in the bottle any more.
