    May 31, 2019 - Day 1...couple hours after opening, 2nd glass. Classic cool climate pinot noir on the nose, a little slow to emerge but the aromatics are pretty standard pinot. Darker profile on the glass versus some of the oregon or santa rita pinots i've recently enjoyed. Decent weight mid palate, red fruits, mildly sweet, medium to short finish. 13.5% alcohol. Pretty fair at QPR $20 or under, solid entry level pinot.
    Day 2. Air vac overnight, More of the same from day 1. a slight alcohol on the scent on the back end. fairly dry on the finish on palate and fruit lingers, still very serviceable and a good QPR/entry level PN. A safe bet for a big party. 88-90

    May 27, 2019 - The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are fast. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like strawberry and cranberry. It tastes like cranberry, blackberry and red currant. The body is light/medium. The wine has polished texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.

    May 16, 2019 - Poured through an aerator and into a decanter where it sat for 15 minutes. Good nose, very good flavors of dusty cherries, blueberry and lots of spice, plus some oak on the finish. Kinda thin in the mouth. Just doesn't want to coat your whole tongue, seemingly. Minimal acid, some fine drying tannins. 20-second-plus finish. Pretty good, but expected better given many past experiences with La Crema and a great vintage to work with. 87 points.

    May 9, 2019 - Solid and well balanced medium viscous Pinot. Flavors of darker red fruit with a mild acidic profile. Mid palette is a bit of a let down as the depth of the fruit did not exist and nor any nuances to speak of. Finish is good (not great) as it had a balanced profile. Finish is short and dominated by slightly sour berry fruits.
