Disappointing. Over extracted and almost oxidized. Tobacco and darker secondaries don’t quite go well with the lean body

Bought from Rare Wine company years ago. It’s privately made by ceo of Cypress Semiconductor. This wine has become really good after 16 years. I think it will age more. Layers of flavor, toast and long finish. Wish I had more!

Perfectly serviceable Pinot noir. Pretty good really. But it's hard to get past the extreme level of pretension and arrogance present in the marketing...I would like to taste it blind. Very strong oak presence, even 12 years later.

Started very acidic and mellowed after a few. Didn't quite compensate though.

Couldn't resist snapping a photo of this at WOPN.... With just one acre for this vineyard, I guess it qualifies as a rarity..... Dense, tannic, built to age, hard to really know what is going to happen.....
