    June 19, 2022 - Very slow to open up. First night just some raspberry. Second night, however, was quite enjoyable. Cheery and raspberry nose along with some earthy notes. Palate was balanced with some acidity holding it together with mint and mushroom added to the red fruits. Full finish.

    October 26, 2021 - OK, and held up after Coravin 6 months earlier. Nice pinot, but not in the same league with other $70 Pinots.

    April 27, 2021 - Consistent with my last note, but just crazy good. What is hitting me over the head right away is a high-toned wild raspberry goodness (both in aroma and taste) to it. No cola detected. Still lovely menthol notes, but not as strong as it was a year ago. Wow, looking back to the early quarantine days -- what great wines we drank!
    This one has years ahead, but it is at a great crossroads of still having young fresh fruit while just developing that mushroomy earthy floor.
    My suggestion is to start drinking...and if you have, save another for 2-3 years from now.

    April 18, 2020 - Drank with BBQ King salmon, orzo and asparagus. This wine has evolved beautifully with red berry fruit, mid palette tannins and a nice cola finish. A lighter style Pinot that married up with the meal perfectly.

    March 30, 2020 - It is delicious and has none of the Sonoma Coast broodiness that is causing Pinots to have an identity crisis--what do they think they are, Syrahs? This taste like S Coast of decades ago (the first one that sticks out in my mind was a Flowers from over 20 years ago). Sorry but the WA review of warm raspberries (even though for the average reader conveys a sense of popular likeability) takes it in the wrong direction. The 2015 has a high-tone, menthol wiff, that makes it just lovely.
