    August 19, 2021 - Our last Loring from being on the list for several years. Screwcaps definitely work - never had an issue with a corked bottle under screwcap. Somewhat muted and neutral, but there was a nice full plummy core that reminded me of the varietal. Medium to full body, and still some life left, though I don't expect significant improvement.

    December 25, 2016 - Really surprising fresh. Opened and barely decanted. Limited sediment. Round and succulent first sip. Middle makes you salivate. Long long long finish

    October 4, 2016 - Big rich gooey creamy dark a bit unbalanced and over the top.

    July 20, 2015 - My last bottle of Loring and a reminder that I need to start buying from Brian again. This bottle was in a sweet spot, with good fruit structure and nice balance. While certainly not a lighter style pinot noir, this was enjoyable to drink and should hold for several more years.

    December 6, 2014 - A really nice wine drinking beautifully. This is my last. I would not be afraid to hold off on any other bottles I had but I don't think this wine will get any better than it is now. Drink up!
