    May 27, 2013 - Tart cherries with some nice age. Still very expressive. Became quite a bit more impressive after opening it, vacu-vining, and then holding for two nights.

    February 14, 2013 - Very light colour with a teal hue on the rim. Come across quite mature. Nice clean Pinot flavours with a fresh acid grip. On the simple side, but quite enjoyable.

    February 12, 2013 - Last bottle and by far the best. Took some time for it to hit its stride. Cherry/raspberry pie, wonderful depth and concentration. Ample acidity gives a nice lift into the medium-length finish.

    December 2, 2012 - Good acid and fruit, very food friendly for a ripe California pinot. A bit simple at this point as the fruit is starting to fade a bit and nothing it really taking over.

    October 13, 2012 - Much better the. Second day. Simple. Red fruit, cranberry.
