Wine #12: Beautiful Pauillac. Very sexy, good complexity. More cassis and blackberries with hints of tobacco. — 5 years ago
Pretty straightforward Oregon pinot noir. This is a good table wine, especially for the price, but not memorable. Pandemic bottle #12. — a year ago
More heat and sweetness. Not as elegant as Ovello but seems a bigger wine. Finish also long but more black fruits. Gordons tasting #12 — 5 years ago
