    December 16, 2017 - A little bricking on this eight-yer-old wine, the nose has s lit of secondary notes. The palate has a lot of secondary notes with some good cherry, a lot of cola, and spice. I do like this, although it is hotter on the palate than the ABV would suggest at 14.1%. Good wine, though not the best of this crazy night. It has been open for a full day

    May 4, 2017 - Lovely wine from Greg Brewer. It is certainly well-made, with very expressive fruit, despite the age. A nose full of red fruit, subtle white flowers, forest floor and a strong scent of rose petals meet up at first sniff. Being well-balanced and integrated there is no doubt this effort is the result of skilful winemaking. Of course there is no heat, oak appears balanced as does the acidity and fruit. The 2009 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot will perhaps continue to develop for a number of years, but it certainly drinks perfectly tonight too!

    Tasted in a flight with 2009, 2012 and 2015 Brewer-Clifton S:ta Rita Hills Pinot Noir.

    August 19, 2016 - The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like cherry and forest floor. It tastes like cherry and mushroom. The body is light/medium. The wine has satin-like texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

    January 29, 2016 - Drank over two days, better on the first day and at cellar temperature vs room temperature. Opens with crisp and ripe bing cherry with some black raspberry flavors. Good intensity. Excellent QPR. Drinking well now but still youthful.

    October 2, 2015 - Very red. strawberry, cherry violet nose. Lively palate with cherry and strawberry. Good food wine. Getting a slightly bitter/metallic note on the finish, otherwise very nice.
