October 11, 2020 - Amazing
October 3, 2020 - This hit me better than the first of these I tried. Displayed elegant red fruit and a bit more of a fleshy body than the prior bottle. It lands between elegance and powerful. It has a nice mouthfeel and expresses itself well from beginning to end. I still struggle with QPR for appellation wine compared with others that deliver just as well. Nothing wrong or flawed here at all.
September 9, 2020 - I certainly think I drank this too early, but that being said I am not sure how or to what extent the wine will evolve. Bright red fruit, red raspberry and early red cherry. The weight and feel is medium-bodied to be generous. I found it lacking a bit of depth, but this could be evidence of the need for further maturation. It had some nice floral elements on the nose and palate but lacked a bit of oomph. It did not help that I drank another Pinot earlier in the evening that considerably wowed me more and was $38 less a bottle. I will hold on my other bottles of this to see where it goes.
September 2, 2020 - Good but needs some time to develop.
August 20, 2020 - Even this young, a near perfect Russian River
August 17, 2020 - Great Monday night PNP. Lots of depth and PN character.
June 10, 2020 - Solid, densely-flavored, appellation level Pinot. Not certain if it is worth the premium over other top-flight producers.
June 1, 2020 - As expected, excellent PN rendition; not overly extracted but feels like it had great depth and focus. Just what it should be and no more, this is a measure of focused, semi-extracted Pinot noir. Cherry, plumb, light on the nose and body. Excellent.
May 29, 2020 - Cherries, raspberries, light cinnamon spice. OK, not great QPR to be honest
March 22, 2020 - Notes of leather and pencil lead with a bit of cigar box on the nose. Fruit was a bit muted, but as the evening progressed, dark black cherries and a bit of raspberry appeared on the palate. A rather short finish. A nice wine that could probably improve with a bit more age, but a tad disappointing considering the price point.
