    August 20, 2017 - Last bottle of a case that I purchased from Garagiste. I didn't like this at all at first and never thought it would come around. It hung around in a neglected portion of the cellar reserved for those sorts of items. Not good enough to drink. Not good enough to gift or donate. Then one days I tried one a few years back and by God, I liked it. Not great, but not bad. Drinkable on a weeknight when you're looking for a Pinot to accompany dinner. This was the last in a string of 4 that all have fairly similar notes. Light color. Pale red fruit, strawberries in the nose and mouth. Acid in check.With so much wine out there that is more approachable in youth and so little cellar space available, not sure I'd pop for something this simple that took so long to come around.

    March 9, 2016 - I'm stunned to say this, but this really turned out nicely. Well integrated, Soft fleshy red fruit driven favors and no excessive acid (and I'm an acid-phobe). Moderate finish. Nothing spectacular, but very pleasing.
