    February 12, 2018 - Dark red in color. 14.1% ABV. Ripe nose of red fruits, roses and baking spices. Medium body with ample acidity. Big and powerful with a sense of elegance. Bing cherries, mushrooms, cola and spearmint on the palate. The finish is very long. Solid Pinot Noir but the ripe characteristic that I think defines the '04 vintage is slightly off putting. Drink over the next year or so.

    May 7, 2016 - Brought to dinner with friends at country-French restaurant. Everyone loved this wine. I wish I had more.

    December 5, 2015 - Holding up great - These wines age. 100% new world, great purity of fruit, but certainly lacking the complexity, minerality and "super interesting" factor that top 1er cru or grand cru Burgundy has. For $50 though this holds its own as top-tier pinot noir anywhere in the world.

    November 13, 2015 - Still going strong, after 2 days it had plenty of fruit left.

    December 20, 2014 - Still surprisingly young and vibrant smelling and tasting. Loads of bright red berries on nose and pallet. Nuances of cola and wet leaves on the nose. A little leather on the palate. Drinking very nicely now, but I'm thinking these could continue to age and evolve for at least a few years.
