Had another bottle on vacation. Bright Ruby with aromas of sweet red fruit and herb spice. On the palate red fruit flavors of sweet raspberries and cranberries with some cinnamon spice and smoky oak very well balanced, soft tannins and perfect acidity. Lingering finish ending with earthy tones and mineral notes. Aged well after about a year but some more time in the bottle will benefit.

Over extracted. Flabby. No acidity. Couldn't even finish it.

Very herbal and medicinal at first. Blows off and shows you a decadent layer of lush red Pinot fruit. Not my style, but nevertheless satisfying. @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple TX

Clean Ruby with aromas of sweet red fruit and herb spice. The palate shows red fruits, raspberries and cranberries with some cinnamon spice and smoky oak well balanced tannins and acidity. Lingering finish ending with earthy tones and mineral notes. Needs some time in the bottle.

Fantastic Pinot, just like the 2014. Powerful fruit, smooth like a cab, delicious.

This Pinot Noir lived up to the high praise I’ve heard. Full flavor profile without being too heavy. Interesting spice notes, very easy to drink

A go to Pinot. Full bodied with red fruit blueberry tones and some Syrah notes.

A little extracted but the fruit is pure and concentrated. I prefer the old world style with less oak, but it is, without question, a nice expression of Pinot, overall.
