    April 28, 2021 - Wow. Received 3 bottles. Opened one up on a weekday night with pork chop and mac and cheese
    It drank very nice once opened fruitty with some tang on the backend. Mid weight light ruby color. Spice on theid palate and nice taste/ tang earthy? on the backend after it breathed. Can definitely drink now.

    January 9, 2021 - Opening in the glass with notes of sweet berry fruit, orange rind, warm spices and sassafras, the 2018 Pinot Noir Oppenlander Vineyard is medium-bodied, supple and vibrant, with an enveloping core of fruit, melting tannins and tangy, mouthwatering acids.

    December 7, 2020 - Winemaker note - this wine went thru a closed period in the fall but is now starting to open up. Can be enjoyed now (especially if you have multiple bottles) but best to wait until the spring 2021 for more optimal drinking. Paul
