    July 4, 2017 - A good Pinot. Interestingly, it went well with a Bolognese sauce, but I think the wine is sweet enough to cut the acidity of the tomato. Not terribly complex, a little on the sweeter side, short/medium finish, thin on the tongue.

    March 15, 2017 - This has been the house weeknight Pinot for a couple years now, but my confidence was tested by the previous bottle, around the same time sleephaus wrote a not-so-glowing review. It was pretty gross; basically tasted like Meoimi, wasn't sure what to think.

    This bottle returns to its QPR glory -- an entirely different wine. Couple cms of transparency, black cherry, cranberry, apricot pit, coffee grounds, a little brown sugar. Ample acidity and a distinct sour note that I've found typical of R2's slv pinots. Finishes a little short and bitter. Still, an amazing CA Pinot deal.

    March 2, 2017 - A very light, easy, & approachable pnp capable bottle.
    Notes of light strawberry, cedar, forest floor, and delicate on the palate. Drinking well now, and maybe for the next year or two.

    Paired with some epoisses cheese & serrano jamon.
