    May 9, 2014 - This was a great wine that we had with roasted chicken (with a mustard and rosemary coating) and roasted veggies (using the same mustard and rosemary seasoning) and olive oil.

    October 2, 2012 - Just when I thought this winery could do no wrong....This one is a bretty mess. Let me start off by saying that I'm a fan of "barnyard" flavors and barnyard terroir in wines. However, when barnyard is the predominant taste I must call "foul." The other Amalie Robert pinots I've tried have achieved such a magical harmony with structure, balance, bright fresh fruit that isn't jammy, acid and subtle barnyard flavors that I can be reasonably sure that this one is an unintentional victim of brett. I still enjoyed this wine paired with cheese but I would not buy this again at $32. At $15 this would still be a decent accompaniment for food, but this wine fails to represent the excellence that Amalie Roberts has produced in other vintages and other pinots. The 2008 version of this wine is excellent, with only a faint hit of barnyard that serves to enhance the overall experience.

    April 30, 2012 - Nicely balaanced, less fruit forward and more Burgudnian in charcter than the Cameron which we drank the same night. Barnyard and red fruits on the nose. A touch of sweetness on the cherry dominated palate with secondary soy-like flavours.

    December 25, 2011 - Quite a bit of tawny. The fruit is very mature and reflects the mushroom, herb and earth style of Pinot. Medium/full, ready, soft and advanced in the mouth with very little structure. Tastes and feels like it's on a downhill slide. Not my favorite but I can see it having some fans.
