TTTG Blind Pinot: I was shocked when this was revealed and it reaffirms the value of blind tasting. Oak-infused vodka with a bit of offensively-ripe red fruit. I have no idea if this was a representative bottle, but if it is, I cannot understand the other tasting notes.
CT blind tasting group does new and old world Pinot (Brian's): On the first sip this was a blast of dense, overripe, roasted red fruit, and I said then that I didn't like it but at least didn't find it hideously offensive, as I might find a modern Rolland Bordeaux or a SQN. I recant those statements, having given this a bit more air. Fifteen minutes later: the same roasted, overripe red fruit, but now overwhelmed by toasty oak, more oak, and a note of VA. Downright awful.
