A different style of PN than I'm used to drinking. Dark and serious,but complex and well balanced. Great bouquet, which developed more the 2nd and 3rd day. A great experience. One of the best Oregon PN's I've had.
In the glass, this wine was a dark burgundy color and had some wonderful aromas of raspberry, dark cherry, forest floor and vanilla. On the palate, it was silky smooth with great structure and a lingering finish. It was at its peak on Day 2. I think this one has plenty of time left to age gracefully in the cellar...
Burgundy color with a wonderful bouquet and flavor of raspberries, dark cherries, and vanilla, as well as allspice. Very silky on the palate with a seamless elegance. Excellent definition and nuance with a long finish. The Marcassin Three Sisters wine, drunk on Christmas day, was just as glorious, but grainier and perhaps riper. Each of these wines was grand in its own way, and left the great Burgundies drunk along with them far behind.
Opened 2 bottles for Christmas Eve dinner for 8, serving salmon and beef. Poured both through an aerator into pitchers, then let sit for 1 hour before returning to the bottles for service at the table. Nose was muted, but fruit expressed very nicely on the tongue while drinking. The age revealed the fine structure of this wine with a very gentle mouth feel. Received very enthusiastically by all present. A terrific Pinot.
