December 7, 2012 - Nose: Raspberry, Strawberries and some perfumed vanilla. Also shows some toasted caramel, basil and black pepper notes. Palate: Tart and bright red fruit right up front. Strawberry, red current and citrus-like acidity. Slightly hollow on the mid-palate, but nice to get a full wine that is not overly alcoholic or cloying. Finish: Notes of red fruit, tart berries and allspice. Oak is not overt, but adds some toasty spice in the finish.
Day 2 Update - Wine is more cherry, forest floor and floral driven. Acidity subsided with overnight slow ox and actually improved a bit. 91+ on day 2. Ehren had a great 2008 vintage in pinot.1,000 views
