    September 20, 2011 - Take 2, and this is just as delicious as last time. Really distinctively good, and fantastic at the price point.

    February 7, 2011 - My Super Bowl wine. Initially it was quite ripe and fruit forward. Very Californiaish. Jean Gabin would not approve. After 10 minutes of air the acid comes into balance and the wine changes dramatically.
    It's a simple wine A few more years of age might improve it. It tastes like a cousin to pinot noir. Not much tannin. Brght red fruits. Nice balance. Short finish. More acid than a typical pinot noir. That maybe makes it more food friendly. I'd drink it with the same foods I have with pinot noir.
    A pleasant drink but nothing I'd single out as a recommendation for others. A Louis/Dressner import.

    September 12, 2010 - Had no idea what to expect. Was worried it'd be darker, more like his KO "In Cot We Trust." I was pleasantly surprised when it was not and I loved it. Really awesome acidity with beautiful raspberry fruit. Touch of barnyard on the nose and a dimension of that came out some on the first day but more on the second. I wish I would've opened this in July!

    August 11, 2010 - I really like where this wine has gone over the past few months--I think that the extra time made a notable difference in the wine's appeal. Its nice level of raspberry ripeness is balanced by a lively acidity that makes it very easy to drink. No or low tannins; moderate finish. All I know about red wine made from Pinot Meunier is in this bottle and it's telling me that it's absolutely worthy of this solo effort.
