    July 19, 2018 - Ripe black cherry with sweet spice and hints of cherry cola. Good weight and balance offsets the sweetness nicely. Better now vs when last tasted 5 years ago. Holding up very nicely.

    January 6, 2018 - Dark earthy spiced cherry cola aromas. Big, bold, rich, dry, black spice, and roasted cherry. Well extracted and ripe, yet firm with good spice. Bit monotonous and heavy. No longer my preferred style, but good.

    March 19, 2017 - my new world leaning wife loved this bottle but I the old world thought it had great balance of strong fruit presence but married with solid secondary flavors (more burgundian in nature) and great length.

    fun wine.

    February 14, 2017 - This has aged very well. More of a burgundy taste than you would expect of a RRV Pinot. Tannins have completely smoothed out and just a hint of fruit and acidity left to make for a great wine.

    June 6, 2016 - Ruby red in color. 14.4% ABV. Sublime nose of warm cherry pie, pine needles and forest floor. Elegant, complex and exceptionally well balanced. Flavors of black cherries, cloves, nutmeg and mushrooms. This was always a favorite in the WS lineup and it is unfortunate that the wine is no longer made. In a great spot now. Drink over the next 1-2 years.
