    February 14, 2020 - Deep red with violet tint. Starts with an almost effervescent nose of cherry (cola?) which subsided to brooding, secondary nites of spice, ripe cherry, some woods, oak, and hints of vanilla. Still going strong 13 years in, but definitely not the fruit forward wine of its youth.

    November 11, 2017 - Pop and pour. Very ripe, showing loads of cherry and a hint of tobacco/brambles. On the palate, pure sweet cherry and ok acidity, perhaps slightly flabby; almost syrah texture, but soft finish, with tannin resolved.

    February 27, 2017 - Starting to fade. Ripe red cherry, strawberry and raspberry fruit with some cola notes. Decent acidity at this point, nice finish.

    February 6, 2017 - Nice dark aromas of expresso dusted cherry. Quite ripe, yet retains interest. Ripe sweet dense sweet cherry fruit with a tart finish. Good to very good, but just a bit disjointed tonight. Want to give this another shot soon.

    February 5, 2017 - Nose is huge with dense, rich black cherries and spice. A bit too much on the palate with sweet and somewhat cloying cherry fruit. One of my gateways Pinots when I first got into wine ... but not my cup of tea anymore.
