    November 27, 2015 - Not varietaly typical, too thick and jammy, more like a cheap Syrah or zinfandel. Very disappointing.

    October 27, 2014 - much better than 1st bottle, almost typical Pinot character (tasted more like a Syrah last time I tasted). Not great but at least acceptable and reasonably enjoyable now.

    April 22, 2014 - Hunh, so having recorded all of these being consumed, I find another.
    On PnP, initially tasted like a very tannic Dr. Pepper. With air it came together better, exhibiting sour black cherry, orange peel, baking spice. However, still not in balance with alcohol and tannins intruding on any pleasurable aspects.

    August 25, 2013 - Last, and the best. Maybe this one was worth the modest tariff, but overall my five were a bust.

    December 8, 2012 - This still tastes more like cinsaut than pinot
