Finally opened this club shipment. Popped and poured with aeration into Riedel Sommelier Pinot Noir glass. Interestingly, cork top was stained red and some mold apparent. To my happy surprise, the wine was very much intact, with nose-filling aromas of "the barn" that blew over after 5 minutes to reveal fresh bing cherries and raspberries. This wine is dense and full bodied, with similar flavors on the palate. Tons of life left, and I wish I had a few more bottles.
Wonderfully delicious with rack of lamb at Lavanda in Palo Alto, CA. Opened and poured. Was immediately accessible, with a long and rich presence of soft berries held together by reasonable structure. Agreed with many notes that this has several years of life ahead.
