    October 22, 2013 - See through garnet. Dirty strawberry and spice nose. Medium bodied, piercing tart cherries, grainy tannins, a bit of heat, and a slightly astringent medium finish. Somewhat Burgundian and more austere than last time.

    March 2, 2013 - Straight out of the bottle through a Vinturi it's a rose-dusty nose, sharp fruity body, very pure Pinoty. Simple start, with excellent outhwatering acidity and red-dark cherry (the PN taste!), with a long finish. Not layers of depth, no dirt, no barnyward, but just a very good, biting tasty PN. Really realy good, and at the knockdown half price offer amazing value. Really good stuff, and my goto low-end American PN if I Can get again at that price, as it's medium-level stuff, Clean, well-made, and good like Villages or better!
