Community Tasting Notes (34) Avg Score: 91.1 points

  • Just a great bottle. Intense nose of wet earth & black raspberry, with smoke emerging with air. On the palate a firm, focused wine tasting of meats, smoke and earth, with a lingering finish that makes a statement. Surprisingly fresh for a 13 year old pinot, with perfect balance and plenty of drinking window remaining. Tremendous.
    A birthday gift from another CTer, for which I again thank him profusely!

  • Solid bottle of pinot. went well with grill baked King Salmon. Plenty of cherry fruit. This wine has the acidity and backbone to continue evolving.

  • Decanted for 3 hours. Nearly opaque color. Still reticent aromas of red and black cherries, iron and earth but still so primary. Seamless and harmonious on the palate but just so young and firm. Please, lord, give me the strength to not open another bottle of this for several more years.
    Day 2 (un-gassed, cork pushed back in). Starting to open nicely with notes of cinnamon, allspice, and brambly red fruit on the nose. Deep and structured on the palate yet perfectly balanced with good ripeness on the attack. It would be easy to call this "Burgundian" but it is, in fact, an American classic Pinot. 93+ points on day two with lots of upside potential. 2020-2025+. Yeah! 6 more bottles in the cellar.

  • Decanted for 2-3 hours. A I really, really liked this wine. A captivating nose of black cherry, spice, florals and sweet stemminess. The palate has good concentration and layering. Well balanced. In a very good place and should hold for years.
