    September 14, 2012 - This is at its peak (from our cellar). Huge California pinot, in-your-face, but still tastes like pinot rather than,say, syrah.... lots of fun, well balanced even with its high alcohol... aw hell, what's not to like? If'n you want subtlety, go elsewhere... :)

    October 25, 2011 - We found this Pinot to be a bit weak. It's very jammie for a Pinot. It doesn't have classic Pinot qualities. My wife loved it because it was Jammie. She ranked it a 91 and I gave it a 88

    July 7, 2010 - This pinot has evolved into a beautiful pinot that is now ready to drink and should last for at least another 3 years. Sadly just one bottle left.

    April 10, 2010 - Saturdays at One - Volume 17: WIML90?

    Opened and decanted for about an hour and a half, double decanted back into the bottle and then served around the five hour mark. Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of roses, Kirsch, talc and berries. Flavors of berries and cherries. Little light on the palate compared to the previous bottle. Light to medium acidity, resolved tannins, medium body. Drink now. Definitely better than the 2003 Koplen we had last week. My last bottle.

    April 10, 2010 - The nose had cherry and spice, mushroom, wet leaves, and vanilla. The palate juicy and sweet, with earth, cherry, mushroom, and a nice vanilla finish.
