    July 4, 2012 - Nose: Extreme barnyard funk. Like sniffing a cow's ass in the middle of a forest. Taste: an explosion of flavor -- high alcohol heat, cherries, tobacco, in that order. Major acidic tartness to balance the berry fruit sweetness throughout. A really aggressive Pinot with some fascinating characteristics, but overall a little too over-the-top.

    August 19, 2011 - decanted for 1 hour and enjoyed over 3 hours. really pretty pinot aromas of black cherries, spice, and dried earth. put on weight and depth of flavor throughout the evening, leaning toward blacker fruits from its original red fruit profile. while pinot has yet to sway me as a go-to varietal, i am finding myself enjoying pinot more and more. paired with a blt and worked really well, playing with the bacon's savory qualities and the sweetness of the tomato. the weight of the wine was perfect for the interplay of textures from the blt. good stuff! 86-89.

    May 18, 2011 - this was a great pinot and a steal at twenty dollars...tremendous balance and acidity with nice juicy red fruits..much better than a majority of pinots i have had recently at twice the price. this remained vibrant on day two. i am loading up on this. highly recommend if you can find it.

    January 16, 2011 - Massive bouquet of red fruits. More body than typical pinot. Great finish and enough acidity to pair well with our appetizers. A steal at this price.

    December 12, 2010 - have now tried 3 bottles and believe this is a best buy. Didn't experience any mustiness, but plenty of soft fruit and good balance. I would recommend this wine if it was 50% more costly.
