    April 3, 2019 - Such a unique Pinot Noir. On the nose, lots of earth and spice with hints of brett. The body is heavier than I expected; nice aged fruit with plenty of acid and structure. Medium finish. Definitely getting past its prime but still in a really good spot. Drink up if you have any in the cellar!

    March 7, 2017 - From a magnum. Surprisingly earthy for Oregon Pinot Noir, with brett notes. Good substance and solid acid. Very nice! 91-92.

    June 17, 2013 - Tasted in a 2001-2011 vertical: Rich, wonderful nose of dark fruit, chocolate, blackberries and cherries with just a touch of dried flowers. The palate shows great texture from start to finish with ripe blackberries and cherries, earthy terroir, leather and vanilla. Long length with good acidity and dusty tannin. Overall balance is very good and the wine currently very complex, showing some youth and age. My second favorite of the vertical tasting. 91+
