Community Tasting Notes 30
July 13, 2014 - - Purple color and aromas of violet and has flavours of black currant - Drank with fresh wild Alaskan salmon at our house with Marty and Henry on July 12, 2014. Great sunset over Cabezon and a Super Full Moon.
May 31, 2014 - - Purple color - Dinner w/Kermite at our house on 5/30/14. Slight butterscotch nose that went away quickly resolving into classic smoke and gun metal after taste.
April 24, 2014 - Initially on pop and pour, this wine is surprisingly neutral - not giving much aroma especially for a California pinot noir. The palate gives dark cherry fruit and a savory edge; not sure I would've even picked this as pinot noir if tasting blind. The acidity is good and the fruit not overripe, but this just felt a bit dull at first. No presence of TCA, just reminded me of an over-the-hill Bourgogne.
On nights 2 and 3 after refrigeration, this loosened up and showed more typicity, and the juicy acid backbone here provides most of the pleasure, but given that I liked this wine at release, this is perhaps a bit disappointing. Could be an awkward middle stage?
