    March 31, 2022 - Beautiful perfumed aroma, elegant balanced flavor, long savory finish, low alcohol. Fine and delicious, a beautiful representation of Dundee AVA Pinot in a cool vintage. It’s ready to drink now….I wish I had 12 more bottles.

    September 4, 2021 - Had this last night. It was a beautiful, elegant, classy wine firing on all cylinders almost from the beginning. Translucent ruby in colour, it has a glorious nose of sandalwood, cherries, mushrooms, cinnamon and earthy notes. The medium bodied yet intensely flavoured wine showed similar notes on the palate and had a lovely, velvety texture with just the right amount of light tannins at the end to give it structure; it was beautifully balanced as well, and I liked the balance between the fruit and savory notes. It seemed to be in its secondary phase, I think this will improve over the short to medium term, but it was sure was spot on last night (A).

    June 2, 2020 - Last bottle from several purchased around 2012; the nose here is explosive and ripe with black cherry, black raspberry, hints of cola, loads of baking spice, and just a hint of some leaf litter. The palate is ripe, but very well balanced, super silky with good acidity and a lovely finish. This really still seemed fairly primary to me and in proper storage this can easily go another decade.

    May 6, 2020 - Much better than previous bottles... I had given up hope on these, I guess I just needed to wait a little longer. Darker color than the 2011 I opened the night before, but still translucent. Darker berries, but no over-ripe flavors. Sourness of the acid in previous bottles has disappeared. More funk and earthy flavors have emerged, which were in great balance with the fruit. However, this did fall apart on night 2 - fruit faded replaced by a bit of a metallic taste. Delicious, but time to drink up.

    October 1, 2019 - PnP, consumed over two nights. Light bodied without being thin on the palate. Nice fruit still showing, but not at all "fruity." Held up just fine overnight, so no reason to think this won't continue to drink well for another 3-5 years, if not longer.
