Notes of strawberries, cherries, and minerals. Really opened up after a couple hours. Great intensity, delineation and focus, more like a fine Burgundy than a California Pinot.

Wow, this wine was singing last night. It was a brilliant deep ruby, medium full-bodied with little signs of age. The explosive nose of cherries, spice, raspberries, and forest floor jumped from the glass. The taste was perfectly balanced, concentrated, with bands of delineation and complexity I normally associate more with Burgundy than California Pinot Noir. The tannins were finely integrated, while the finish went on and on with no trace of excessive heat. This was an ethereal experience, and represents the pinnacle of pinot noir. I've never had a great DRC La Tache, but this is what I would imagine it to be.
