Amazing Pinot with great cherry flavor and the slightest touch of cola. This entire wine just sings.

Absolutely delicious, but a bit past prime, with surprisingly little evolution. Heady candied rose, dried strawberry and raspberry, pure ethereal focused fruit, good texture, but no secondary characteristics. Refreshing medium/medium minus acidity, but otherwise little structure. The wine was slightly opaque and had the look of a wine that was starting t come apart. Lesson learned - not meant for aging. Won’t evolve. Little to gain, probably best within 3-5 years. to me, QPR vs a good very good 1er cry burgundy doesn’t make sense

Best papa I've had. Wish I had more. Great fruit that is well balanced and gives hints of mild oak. Had with grilled salmon. Perfect pair.

A very rich, full bodied, fruit forward RR Pinot. Perhaps a bit too rich and full bodied for my liking.
