This wine went from paler ruby to an invitingly dark color by the third day opened. The mouth features an unusually pure taste of bright acidity and red cherry fruit. On swallowing, there is a spike of sour cherry, followed by drying tannin that is lightly leafy, faintly bitter, and very good with vegetable soup. Surprisingly similar to some French red Burgundies.
Fairly complex nose of cigar box, earth, barnyard, bramble. Cherry, berry, spice on the palate. Full body. Disappointing rather short finish keeps this from being a very nice wine. Still an easy drinking Pinot with interesting complexity.
