Tasted blind as a part of an '07 Cali Pinot horizontal. Randomly placed in the same flight at the '07 Kutch Sonoma appellation wine, which showed better (more depth, brightness, nuance) than this one. The McD was good but relatively simple in flavors. Well balanced but lacking depth. Solid but no better. 89-91 points.
with a short decant then into glass, at first some candied notes, not so enjoyable, but this blew off after another 30 min. and settled into a rich, rounded wine with great depth and red fruit, tannins and acid were in check, only negative but normal is there wasn't much, if any, complexity in this. Time to drink
