    December 21, 2013 - Very floral nose. Tastes a bit harsh, with light, tart fruit and green pepper. Rather bitter finish detracts.

    September 14, 2012 - Had a bottle in my cellar but not sure where it came from. I would call this a bit harsh and rustic but still very lively and drinkable. Musty, dark cherry nose but oaky, spicy and tart berry on the palate. Not familiar with this region or its typical style but I can enjoy if for what it is. The heat is evident but the bottle will get finished in one night, could very easily be smoother the next day. Since I only have one bottle I won't find that out.

    February 4, 2012 - Agree a touch sharp but didn't mind w Parmesan cheese, nice berries, though as wife said "sharper than a regular Pinot.". Didn't mind the cola, but I'm also a guy who likes cream soda.

    December 20, 2011 - Aromas of earth, smoke, truffles and cherries. Similar profile on the palate but it was has a little harsh mid-palate on the first night, with too much pepper and hints of alcohol. Smoother on the second nigh, quite enjoyable peppery pinot. 87-88

    November 25, 2011 - Aromas of red raspberry, strawberry, lavender, anise, cola, with hints of dried herbs and earth. The tart fruit flavors on the palate are accompanied by black pepper and oak spice.
