Bottle 5 of the box. Been a few years since the previous one. Past it’s prime or between phases? Most of the fruit is gone. Acidity still, with mellow tannins but nothing so interesting otherwise. Not getting much tertiary. Not actually bad, but just kinda bland-ish and ordinary. Will have to wait and see what the next one is like in another year or two.

Another year on. Got a bit overpowered by the food but a nice balance of rich earth and bright Pinot noir fruit.

Nobody gets an A but his wine is a strong B. Lite bodied but full & lush. Goes fantastically with buckwheat crepes with Comte,ham, spinach, button shrooms, & asparagus at the Finseths. Yum!
