Popped and poured at Crop Bistro. The nose here just leaps out of the glass, with an alluring mix of red fruit, orange peel, eucalyptus (or maybe pine) and a savory tomato aspect. The same flavors carry through to the palate. There was little apparent tannic structure after opening, but by the last glass the tannins were more pronounced and the affability of this became obvious. A "wow" wine for me. I love R-M but don't always buy the OV. I will now.94(+?)
At first taste kind of acidic followed by nice red fruit. But, as the glass went along, the acid sort of began to build up and make you not want to drink more. The second day it just tasted of sour cherry. Obtained on winebid.com which probably had nothing to do with it.
Popped and poured and consumed over two days. Frank Murray nailed this one with the pine needle and purple flower on the nose. Follows through on the palate with cola, pomegranate and red fruit. Didn't budge much over two days but there isn't any real tannic structure either. This is open and ready to go. This is really nice wine and distinctive from other Cali Pinot. Still, my heart and soul belong to the old world.
