    June 6, 2020 - Damn this is good. Tonight, the wine revealed itself similarly to the previous recent descriptions. Absolutely delightful. I am very partial to the extra richness of Russian River Valley pinots with respect to California pinots. Alluring aroma. Medium to full rich, smooth, delightful, ripe. Can't take off as much for the ripeness as other reviewers. Older Allens are special wines.

    February 25, 2020 - {Bought on release, perfect fill, PopNPour} Intensely ripe red cherry fruits, sweet without sugar from ripeness, complex aromatics and palate reflects the nose. Good length and finish. This bottle has held up well - too ripe a style for me personally but beautifully made wine that convincingly demonstrates how good W-S wines can be.

    December 9, 2017 - Dinner (Samir Uncle's House): Aromatic candied cherry, slight balsamic vinegar, really complex; light bodied, medium alcohol, red strawberry fruit, ripe and candied; medium finish. Nice and complex but seems a bit ripe for my preference. Still good... 91

    September 23, 2016 - The wine looks brick colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like cranberry and strawberry jam. It tastes like cranberry. The body is medium/full. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has high acidity.
