    May 6, 2016 - Drinking beautifully right now. Bright red fruit, spice and a nice earthiness, balanced, and a long finish. It held its own with a 2008 Domaine Serene Grace. I look forward to enjoying this wine again, along with other Failla pinots.

    January 20, 2011 - Nice garnet color and crystal clear, not much aroma on opening but this has developed into a nicely balanced Santa Rita Hills pinot. We'll see how it holds up over the next hour.

    October 1, 2009 - Great taste and I would rate it higher but it seems a bit cloudy on opening.
