Rock and salinity and a citrusy freshness. Nothing characteristic of age that I can detect, but it's been a while since I had one. And just as good after a week in the fridge (don't ask why I didn't finish it the first night). A why-don't-I-have-more wine.
I have had three bottles of Wyncroft's 2005 Pinot noir and they have all been excellent. Lovely and refreshing, with a slightly smoky and earthy cherry nose, a spritely palate, and near-fully integrated tannins. Probably for drinking sooner rather than later, but these were still in very good shape.
I know this wine used to have a good dollop of carignan in it with about 10 percent syrah--does it still? It seems to. Good fruit, a little savory, and a little green around the edges too, but nothing untoward. I'd like to say something like, "It's a pretty nice wine for a crisp fall night," but it's 70 degrees and as humid as July, so, I'll just say it: it works all right for me.
