  • Robert Pavlovich Likes this wine:

    October 10, 2020 - So fresh and pure, shows elevated acidity, with beautiful and restrained (slightly) sweet red fruit. Best Arcadian showing I can recall.

    June 6, 2020 - Fully mature pinot and drinking well. Lots of earth, forest floor, mature fruits. Took about 2 hours to get any sweetness but it is there buried deep. I wouldn't wait too much longer.

    May 16, 2020 - Started out OK but quickly turned harsh and astringent. Off bottle.

    November 16, 2019 - 2019 Los Olivos Trip; 11/14/2019-11/17/2019: Every year, a blend of the 4 best barrels. Darker feel, but still an acid-driven wine. Unbelievable that this wine is 17 years old.

    October 12, 2019 - Popped and poured. Darker ruby. Nose of damp cellar, cinnamon, violets, fresh cut berry. Some brett on the palate along with black raspberry, plum, briar, and iron. Nice acidity and filed off tannin. Moderately long finish. Quite nice this evening.
