Popped and poured. Followed over 3 hours. Inadvertently grabbed this bottle enroute to restaurant.
Color is darker then other WS. Nose is quite fragrant with dark Hood River cherries. Masculine. Pure flavors of dark/black cherry, fresh tomato, hint of mushroom, and wet earth. Firm mouth feel that softens dramatically on the very long finish. Nice acidity. Delicious precise fruit.
Delicious. A masculine WS pinot for sure. I think this was a cooler vintage in RRV. Obviously a youngster, but freakin' tasty.
Dark ruby color. Nose of dark fruit, ollalieberry and black cherry. A little vegetal also, maybe a hint of tomato. On the palate, intense rich cherry and blackberry. Reasonably long finish. I feel like this would be much better with some years on it, but drinking well as very rich, fruit forward CA pinot.
