    March 11, 2012 - I'm with the 90 pt camp. Really juicy ripe fruit then the balancing tang and spice hits. Tonight was a screw and pour, no decant. I like the pinot funk aromas. Feel like the fruit, while ripe, is balanced enough to last and probably has some more life. Tasty, but caution if you expect Russian River style.

    February 24, 2012 - My last bottle. still good juice. earthy, spices, aged well for a pinot in this price mark.

    November 29, 2011 - Overall, a disappointment. On opening, there was nominal nose and it was sharp on the tongue with a very light finish. The wine softened somewhat over the evening but was still sharp, not what I was expecting. On day 2, it had smoothed out somewhat, still not much nose to speak of and was clearly less sharp on the finish. On day 3, there was no improvement at all from the prior day.

    August 3, 2011 - Another nice bottle - aromatics were a bit more pronounced than the last one. Incredibly spicy red fruit, really good bottle.
