    October 9, 2012 - I was surprising pleased by this bottle. A very nice pinot for the price. Wish I had bought a few more.

    August 11, 2012 - Surprisingly good at its price, beats most bourgogne regional that I've had. Already peaked, supposed not to be aged any more.

    August 29, 2011 - Light in color in the glass. The nose for me has a berry and (quite pleasant) bacon/beef fat odor like a real Burgundy - the similarity ends there. Nice sweet berries on the palate, quick finish with a slight sharpness at the back end. Not at all bad for the price.

    March 30, 2011 - Wow. this is the first sub-$20 Pinot Noir I've had and thought was half way decent. It has the central coast cherry cola spice thing going. A nice acidity.If you are looking for a cheap date with pinot noir, look no further. I do not think you will find better at this price point.

    March 15, 2011 - Somewhat unremarkable. Mild/medium tannins, subdued berries on the palate. I'm not much for picking our scents but there was some berry and "dust". I found the body somewhat thin, and there was something vaguely unpleasant about the finish. It certainly isn't a horrible wine but not something I'll return to.
