  • 13.2% alcohol. Drinking beautifully. Red cherry color, lightens at the rim of the glass. Complex, lovely nose of red cherry, a touch of stems, flowers, earthy spice, and minerals. In the mouth, linear and precise, with juicy, slightly tart cherry, a slight touch of attractive funk. Drinking this wine makes you feel like you're walking into the winery. It's an outlier in John's style -- intentionally so -- but it's delicious and delightful. A-/A

  • Berserker Day 2010: Deep purple, blackberry nose. Chalky dry, red berries grab you with acid on the PnP. Lighter fruit, it's the acid that dominates with some stemmy tannins filling in the back ground. Looking for good things tomorrow. As anticipated another day has been rewarded with improvement. The acid has integrated with the fruit and some lightly bitter tannins have emerged along with some cola. With more air, the bitter has subsided, lovely with tart cheddar. No need to hurry on this one, it will last a long time. Wait another year or two.

  • The best, perhaps, of the Holdredge BerserkerDay wines...but I'm biased toward 'Old World' anyway. A perfect balance of tart and sweet, nice mouthfeel, and a richness in the finish. I'm trying hard to save a couple glasses for tomorrow, as I think this might really shine in a day.

  • Liked this. PnP. Really opened up after about 30 minutes. Tart cran/cherry a good bit of minerality, floral, and some stems. Nice balance. Wish I had more.

  • Love Holdredge Pinots, but I didn't really care for this particular bottle. Stemmy, green, sharp with acid a bit out of whack. Nice fruit underneath, but seemed disjointed to me.
