    June 5, 2021 - Solid, modern Cali Pinot Noir; it's fairly heavy, some oak present, loads of cherry and cola notes to it. Finish is average. It's enjoyable, but even at $29 it leaves you wanting more.

    QPR 5.5 (of 10)

    Aging 2025 at least

    May 20, 2021 - The nose promises more than the taste delivers. As others have said, it’s an interesting mix of herbal and fruit notes. But it’s still dominated by the high alcohol (14.2%) which inhibits other flavor notes. The flavor palette seems very narrow; I predominantly taste it on a narrow section around the center of my tongue. I prefer more complex wines, which I sense all the way to the left & right edges.

    For $28 from Last Bottle I’m not complaining, but this is another Etude pinot that’s left me underwhelmed compared to other pinots from the region (Storm, Whitcraft).
