Very pure wine with a bit of stink. Pure fruit. Real length and depth. There’s a sourness and herbal prettiness to this.

Soft raspberry fruit with a bit of mint and some faded raspberry and elderflower. Pretty and pure.

Tawny red color. Not the nose you would expect for a Pinot. More old Italian like. Notes of tea, maraschino cherries, roses, dry earth and some wood. Nice in the mouth and grabs your attention. Lighter fruit matched against still vibrant acidity. Puckering structure. I’d like to say this needs more time but the fruit has evolved to a point where I don’t know if this will be all that better in 5 yrs. Have had better experiences with this one. Still, the quality of the wine is evident, especially with more air (5+ hrs) over the evening.

Wonderful. Went from post football game locker room to a spicy dried cherry compote.

Still ruby but with brickish red rims. At first an odd nose but with air this became flamboyant with mushroom notes and odd dusty fruit. With air more complexity and some sour cherries and soy. Long finish. This wine is controversial but not tonight, it's outstanding.

Not a fan. A "controversial" bottle i'd never have pegged this blind. Big and unyielding.

Sweet pipe tobacco. Leather. Super juicy, dried black cherry. Great structure.

This bottle was singing, living up to its early reviews of potential greatness.
