  • quite the pleasant surprise. 30 minutes of non decanted air/ time in the glass really helped this wine shed some initial brightness, and a clumsy earth profile, allowing the red fruit to soften from cherry to berry, and pick up some nice complexity.

  • Opened for 1st Anniversary Dinner at The Basin in Saratoga. Surprisingly lively for a 98 Cali Pinot -- and in better shape than the bottle we consumed last year. Reddish fruits cloaked in a bit of vanilla, which signifies (to me) that this wine saw some serious new oak. It wasn't too obtrusive, but noticable. Medium-bodied, elegant and silky on the palate. If you have 'em, it's time to drink them up.

  • Bright disc. Medium ruby robe with red rim. Clean, moderately intense nose showing cherry, "bramble," spiced apple, plum and dried herbs. Very well-balanced, medium-bodied and showing similar flavors as for the nose, with the addition of black tea. Ample but very well-integrated tannins. Medium-to-long, smooth finish. My impression has somewhat changed with respect to this wine, in the sense that it appears to have the structure to further improve and then hold for a longer period of time than what I have previously thought.
