Smells like cherry cigarette ashes. But I like the rugged flavor. It’ll put a beard on ya. Earthy and cloudy and light smokiness.

Very earthy and balanced for the first hour, then some unusual fading of the fruit. That said, this is an otherwise balanced classic Pinot noir and it was delicious.

Damn, this clever old bastard really took me by surprise. At first pour and smell, I thought I aged it 5 years too long, then I let it open up. Yeah, a little soft on the nose, it is at its absolute peak, but the acid and the fruit with maraschino cherry and candied plum didn't back down at all! This was such a satisfying little wine, I'm glad I kept it for as long as I did.

Cherry and violet but light and delicate. Excellent.

Great Pinot! Nice flavor, very smooth. Had it with pesto chicken pasta that Nancy made.

I had this 2/24/17. This was a bad bottle as the cork was wet. Tastes of cherry. Needed the aerator to soften the tannins. Should have been better

Smoke, darker berries, and black tea. Quite liked this after it had sat open for a while
