Bought a 2010 mixed case of this from wine.woot (2010 Pinot Noir and Merlot) with the current Pinot, for $95, including shipping.
Gave most of the bottles to vampire-loving friends for the nice label.
Hope this vintage has improved in the past 3 years. I recall a few comments that people felt it was worth the price (perhaps because they loved the label). I plead the 5th.
I was given a bottle of this around that same time (maybe I know you and don’t know it :P). I cracked it open about 3 months ago, and all I can really say is the drinking window appears to be less than 4 years, because it was definitely on the back end of its cycle.
Then again, I’m a real pinot snob anyways (with a strong preference from the Willamette Valley), so I was probably going to dump on it, anyways.
