Drinking the 2012 vintage in April, 2018.

Color is holding up nicely, very pretty ruby.

The nose is ripe and funky! Very fun with gobs of cherry and raspberry fruit plus a little sandalwood and inner tube.

Tasty for sure, but maybe starting to fade, especially on the finish. Pretty silky and all around quite delicious.

For me, this one has plateaued and is maybe on the downward trend. It's certainly not getting any better than this and I'm starting to get a little bit of raisin and oxidative graphite on the back end. If you have any in storage, you might want to drink em this year.

A surprising soft start with nice hints raspberry and strawberry which grow as the sip continues. Very very smooth. Spices throughout that remain in the background to enhance the flavor and texture. The palate is silky forever and fruit gives way to some vanilla perhaps. Wonderful. Even better at $75 if you can find it. Paired with a delightful chicken Milanese at SHGC.

Good expression of Oregon pinot. Good overall depth and finish.

Drank well but mid-palette was a bit empty. Will lay it down for a while to see how it resolves.

Not a big fan. The fruit and oak were way out of balance.
