August 29, 2020 - Brief note as not perfect conditions but this was lovely.
February 17, 2019 - Just terrific! Light, fruity, great finish. Drinking so well right. Even better than a year ago. Disappointed these were my last 2 bottles of 2008.
December 24, 2017 - Better drink this up now. Pleasing and balanced as is, but almost too light with duck
December 20, 2017 - Decant for 2 hours. Drinking nicely. Lots of fruit on the nose. Smooth tannins.
December 20, 2017 - Our of mag, way better than the last 750. Much more weight, fruit brighter, good acidity. Home run wine in this format.
April 24, 2017 - Excellent. full fruit CA pinot noir. Age mellowed the acid and tannins. The best of the overblown CA pinots.
March 23, 2016 - At Ai Fiori in NYC, second wine of the evening, followed a Marcassin Pinot...unintended but tough comparison. PnP, drank over 30 minutes.
Nice ruby color. Nos was a little reticent at first, with red fruits and floral notes coming through towards the end. Fruit forward cherry, dark raspberry, cherry cola and bramble. Medium finish.
Modest complexity, the group like this
February 10, 2016 - Medium weight, good bright red fruits now, good acidity, nicely balanced.
January 15, 2015 - Ruby red with no hint of brown edge. Decent nose of red fruits upon opening. But weak in taste as if it was watered down. Very little fruit in the mouth. And it doesn't show any complexity. It was not balanced among fruits, acid, and alcohol. Short finish. The wine didn't improved over the next couple hours.
July 6, 2014 - Bigger, richer than many WS vineyards, yet still elegant and refined. Ripe fruit with nice acidity, finishing with oak and smoke.
