    October 22, 2016 - Still hanging in there but too sweet for my taste. Beyond the upfront sweetness there is not much going on. The high alcohol content is notable. Short finish. I can't compare it to when it was younger. Perhaps it is on the decline.

    July 6, 2016 - This was just a beautiful bottle. Soft, lush fruit in perfect condition for current drinking.

    June 18, 2015 - This wine drank more like a recent modern pinot noir than a vintage one. At opening this was + 15 years old. Much smoother than most pinot noir's and great, and I mean great fruit forward taste. Highly recommended given the auction price paid of around $ 35.00/ bottle

    January 3, 2015 - 15.5% alcohol in pinot? Too evident for my taste.
