Purchased in 375ml from the restaurant wine list. Ruby color, a clear initial whiff of smokey oak moving to vanillin as this airs. The labels lists 13.7%, but this seems like more with a fair amount of initial alcohol. Chunky, a bit rough around the edges, yet delivering a pretty unabashed mouthful of Syrah-like Pinot. Some bramble and pine emerge with air, and this certainly has nice fruit. With seared duck and sauteed mushrooms, this humble wine was right at home.
