Was not expecting a lot given previous ratings, but this blew me away. Certainly more full bodied and cherry colored compared to more elegant lighter pinots, but extremely complex and transitional. Lively fruit and caramel right out of the bottle. Will be interesting to see what a few hours does to this bottle. Died off on day two, but still really nice. Would not guess it was a pinot due to girth.
Notes from day 2. Dark red color. Nose not as strong as I recall mostly raspberry, On the palate more of the same raspberry flavors, mostly red with a little black, a little cola action, and some mouth drying tannin on the back end. Below average length finish, some acidity, and decent balance for this wine. Will check in on the last half bottle for improvement tomorrow. Hold or drink. 50+5+9+13+5
