Awesome. It's peaked (the '06) but still great.

Needed a bit more time than I expected to open up. More tart than I prefer but still relatively smooth

The '06 is in a really nice place, modest oakiness, strawberry nose, but clean and balanced. I am a fan. Hard to believe this was a WTSO purchase 8 years ago, amazing QPR. Probablt won't get any better from here.

Wonderful fruit forward Pinot; clearly better with age. Pairing was great with sirloin, steamed carrots, and asparagus. And heirloom tomatoes. Very full, lots of red fruit; some smoke and leather. Can likened it to Bacon.

Long time fav in our household. Lots of big fruit, and very smooth. I like the fruit forward Sonoma Pinots, and this one is excellent.

Old favorite. I think this is as aged as you can get before peaking.

Need to open. A reasonable wine. Full for a Pinot. I thought it was a harsh Cabernet until it opened up.

First draw was a bit rough. After letting it open up for about 20 minutes was very pleasant. Would try again.
