    October 16, 2019 - Friends keep opening this wine for me, and I will continue to drink whatever they offer!!! Very similar notes as previous tastings. This is a great Pinot that will go for many years. I look forward to opening bottles from my own cellar in 3-4 years...

    August 2, 2019 - Plum, red raspberry, big black cherry, vanilla-strawberry, spice, and a fistful of alcohol. Following this over two days could not fully shake it of its cocktail profile. Air did help, and day two was much more resolved and in-balance.

    A Maxem UV started out similarly on day one but was able to find more seamlessness in the end, whereas the Aubert stayed beefier, more powerful, and aggressive. A bit of a brute. Hold for a couple more years in hopes it can integrate all of its party animal parts.

    March 2, 2019 - Still very youthful, very “California Pinot” which is a bit odd to me as Aubert usually seems to lean more towards Burgundy. Licorice on the nose and ripe plum on the palate. Very good now, will be interesting to revisit in 3-5 years.

    November 17, 2018 - Red raspberry, ripe red cherry, evergreen, old cinnamon bark, and subtle citrus. Front-loaded with red fruit on the initial attack; full, round, and fairly plush overall at first. The mid-palate was nicely weighted, with some decent energy to push it through to the mouthwatering finish. A bit of alcohol hovered over the palate from nose to tail.

    After about two hours of air (in bottle and in the glass - not decanted), it found more focus and a bit more frame/acid. The sensation of grip was enhanced by a more pronounced display of earth flavors circumnavigating the red fruit core.

    Good to drink now, but holding off another 1+ year is advisable. 94+ points, with upside around 2020+.

    November 3, 2018 - Wonderful pinot. Nicely balanced with good structure and nice concentration. No rush to drink but was good from pnp
