    March 9, 2019 - Had this during the weekend of the Concours D'Elegance in Amelia Island.
    Drank over 3 days from a magnum. This has aged well and is just so melancholy. Aromas and in mouth flavor of black cherry, raspberry, earth, and spice. The viscosity is thinner but the wine is well balanced.

    July 22, 2016 - Nice age domestic Pinot. Alive and well tonight. Nice by smell of fruit, paired with cedar plank sockeye salmon. Thumbs up. Still has some years left on it.

    April 7, 2015 - Medium-light bodied with pleasant cherry and stone-fruit flavors. Drinking beautifully and easy, with a long, balanced finish. Overall, a pleasure, especially if you're after something lighter and less intense. Drink now.

    August 10, 2013 - 3rd bottle of this in the past year, and this is a wine in decline (to my palate). Less primary fruit than the previous bottle, this tilts the balance towards the spice.
    Note that the aroma has not declined in the least (still amazing aroma per QPR), just the power on the flavor and finish have declined. I don't see this falling off a cliff, but if you prefer fruit in your pinot I wouldn't wait long.
    Still, as I sip the end of the bottle... love this wine.
