Lots of red/blue fruits and impressive concentration without coming off as “manipulated” or heavy.

Nice ripe young fruits. Easy to drink, soft tannins with long elegant finish. Not sure about the #3 spectator rating , yet would def drink again!

Just trying some 14's here and there, think they will be delightful! Balanced fruit, great body, still think it can age some more. Will continue to get better!!

Crunchy red and blue fruits with a solid supporting structure and a nice finish. Best with a brief decant or a bit more cellar time.

Drinking wonderful, deep red fruit, great body and spice, need to start drinking more of the 14’s

Savory red and blue fruits with supple tannins and an extended finish. Very good ow and not sure how much this will continue to improve. Not sure how this got WS 95 pts. and one of their top few wines of the year.

Big body, long finish, great dark fruit, still has time to soften. Taste of high alcohol content...

Well wow. Late birthday dinner celebration. Paired perfectly with grilled halibut. Started evening with a 2010 Merry Edwards and ended with this. Medium body Pinot. Earth and fruit beautifully layered. Finish - oh yeah superb. Wonderful wine. WS #3 for 2016 ok maybe. Will have to revisit in a few years. Overall an enjoyable bottle.
