Still nice color and good backbone. Could last at least 2 more years. Still plenty of fruit. Well integrated now very complex nose and taste. Very full body, more of the over extracted Cali pinot style which detracts from the rating. Typical red fruits and terroir of Sta. Rita. What is different in this Clos pepe is the smoke and bacon undertones. Matched perfectly to christmas ham.
Drinking beautifully, red fruit and some burgundy notes to the nose, good fruit with the acid and soft tannins in balance and good finish Tasted with an Argyle Reserve, a J single vineyard and other pinots and this topped the group.
