    June 9, 2019 - Past its peak in 2019 - garnet color, muted and closed at first, but improved substantially an hour or so after decanting.

    February 10, 2019 - Bricking purple in color. Raspberry, sandalwood, and damp earth aromas give way maturing flavors of dark cherry fruit, orange rind, and black tea on the palate. Medium finish.

    July 30, 2016 - Disappointing: either corked or dulled from time. Just a good memory of prior bottles.

    June 6, 2016 - I thought I had waited to long to drink this wine but was surprised! Ruby red color, red berry fruit strawberry, plum and raspberry with a hint of spice. Smooth, balanced, soft tannins, medium body, red fruit still dominates, Rochioli would be pleased that this Pinot Noir held up so nicely after ten+ years. More than satisfied with the results given its age. Glad to know I still have some 2008 to relish perhaps sooner.

    December 27, 2015 - Well balanced with a pleasantly long finish
