    December 4, 2017 - Brilliant deep garnet color. Herby nose with dark red fruit. Classic Cali pinot flavor profile. Still quite tangy; has a decade plus to go. Great stuff.

    July 28, 2017 - Deep, penetrating ruby. Offers deeply layered and complex aromas of ripe black raspberry, just ripe red cherry, cherry skin, intense, just picked purple roses, and gravelly earth. Nearly full bodied, mouthfilling and penetrating with a certain sharpness of texture offsetting lush, fruit-driven flavors that finish with a touch of alcoholic heat. Frankly, I'm not sure this style of Pinot Noir gets much better.

    May 22, 2017 - Absolutely magnificent.....one of the best Pinot Noir I've ever tasted. Fruit lasts forever but isn't an in your face fruit bomb. Fruit rolls across the entire palate and doesn't die in the middle like lesser wines.

    Nose is slightly phenolic (in a good way) with notes of tobacco and dark fruit.

    On the palate it tastes immediately of ripe cherry and red berries. The fruit rolls completely across the tongue without dying in the middle and then lasts for an amazingly long time.

    I really like this wine now, it's drinking superbly and I can't wait to see how it ages.
