Wednesday, July 31, 2013 - Deep red. Soil driven, black raspberry, chocolate and brown spices. Dense across the palate with ripe sweet red fruit and spun sugar in tension with mouth coating tannins. The wine has faded a bit from my first tasting 3 years ago. I think that this is probably one that showed a bit better young but my memory may be fooling me bit. The first time I had this wine was late night on vacation when it was pouring rain out side. I was not expecting much and was happily surprised by the quality of the wine. I do not remember the current lovely brown spices and earthy tones of the wine, but there were some much stronger sweet orange notes I loved on the first visit which have dissipated. Clearly a california pinot. In the end this moves me to uncork the wines while they are still young (but I will not be unhappy to come across forgotten bottles in the cellar down the road).
