Aaron: I liked this bottle, very nice for a pinot.  I enjoyed the toasted earth smell with boysenberry, but not as much as I liked the smooth, fruity flavor.  The body was relaxed and bled into a buttery, gentle finish which was very enjoyable.  92 points

Teri: This pinot has an earthy smell with some berry undertones. Medium bodied and smooth flavor complements the smooth flavor of berries with hints of raspberry and oak. An extremely long lingering earthy and oak finish is versatile and full. 92 points
