  • Good chance to check back in on this, last bottle was 3 years ago. Bottles purchased at release, in my cellar since. Decanted through a vinituri, drank w Val over 90 minutes.

    Medium ruby, translucent. Nose showing red fruits and floral/rose petal notes. Palate of bright red fruits, plum, strawberry, mild spice, black tea. Medium weight, light/elegant texture. Medium finish

    Still drinking well, not much movement (from memory) since last bottle. Probably has a longer term arc than I would have guessed from last bottle...very nice

  • A lighter garnet color. Cherries, spice, and some earth on the nose. Well balanced with nice acidity and crisp red fruit. I think another year or two will improve, soften, and generally make the wine more interesting. Nice wine that is drinking well now, particularly after some air. Good stuff.

  • Similar profile from previous tasting with less plum on the nose and a slight bitter cherry note after several hours.

  • Cherries and other red fruits. This is supple and an extremely nice rendition of Pinot. This single vineyard is more floral than the Hirsch reserve and I detected a stronger cherry scent. Both are wonderful wines.

  • Eye: red, ruby
    Nose: Cherry, pomegranate, sandalwood, spice and earth
    Palate: black cherry, plum, mineral and earth with medium + acidity and medium + finish.

    Overall I'd say this wine just entered its window and currently has great balance and sufficient material to lay down for another 5years. It was lovely tonight and a pleasure to drink. Enjoy!
