This has come together beautifully. Plenty of fruits on the nose with a background of sweet spices mixed with just a touch of earthiness. Easy drinking. No discernible alcohol and the tannins have completely integrated. Just a light hint of acidity so this isn't weighty on the palate. The years have been very kind to this.
I think this is one is a bit past it's prime, but the balance and elegance still show through. Beautiful feminine nose of potpourri and rose is counterbalanced by a definite Riesling-like petrol on the palate. Still plenty of red fruit. Slightly marred by a bit of fizziness on the palate and a touch of VA on the finish.
Pop and pour. Needs a little air to really get going. Light reddish pink. Has a touch of acid at the start but with air balances out well with potpourri and rose pedal and some light fruit notes and pepper and some earthy notes. It is starting on its downhill side as the tannins are resolved the oak is secondary and tertiary notes are there. Drink this up!! Very good old pinot
