    November 13, 2021 - Light color, translucent. Light, pleasant aroma but without distinguishing characteristic of pinot...thought it might be grenache. Medium fruit but not very concentrated. Medium aftertaste. Very nice, but I think it is beyond its plateau.

    October 1, 2021 - Powerful and flavorful on the nose and palate. Tastes amazing after 13 years! Mature fruits, earthy notes, hint of vanilla, smooth tanins. Beautiful pinot.

    May 8, 2021 - (Magnum). No specific notes as this was at dinner. Took around 30 mins to open up and the dried fruit and funk blew off giving way to dark blueberry, cedar and smoke. Delicious. At peak drink ASAP

    October 22, 2020 - Bottle took a few hours of breathing to open up once it did was beautifully smooth and soft with plenty of depth and fruit left. Really and nice and mouthwatering pinot from a great winery.
