    November 16, 2021 - Wow, really enjoyable. Pinot like, but not. Unique flavors, focused with long lingering strawberry flavors.

    July 29, 2020 - First night presented light a new world Pinot Noir (think Mornington or Gippsland in Australia). Plenty of cherry, nice acid. Didn't have the jubiness or bubblegum that I was expecting. Had a glass or two on second night and the Beaujolais/Gamay profile shun through much more. Had rounded out. Still very enjoyable but different.

    May 29, 2020 - Light purple color to the rim - appears unfiltered
    Medium plus aromas of Jolly Rancher cherry candy with rose petal/ green herbal secondaries and obvious stem inclusion
    Medium plus palate of crunchy red fruit and fresh herbs - again a slight green bitterness which adds to the complexity of the palate
    Medium tannins and medium acidity with medium length
    Very nice well made Beaujolais and very drinkable
    Drink now as I don't feel this is an example which will improve with aging

    May 27, 2020 - Single blind tasting
    Purple color
    Aromatics medium +. Green stems and slight candy cherry. No oak
    Palate medium +. Acid medium +. Tannins medium, fine and gum/teeth location. Crips, crunchy cherry with green herbs.
    Finish has medium length. Balance seems towards the stem notes, but crunchy fruit still present. Drink now.

    March 1, 2020 - Cherries on alcohol with a hint of schiste. A smooth and very balanced wine with again that mineral touch that is driving this wine to a next level.
