A pretty interesting pinot -- quite different than several other nearby producers I've tried. Cool inviting nose, not much woody scent that I associate with Carneros. It has lots of cranberry on the palate but is quite muted. Agree with the musty comments, but this is a well made wine overall.
The wine looks garnet colored. It smells like red berries and some mustiness. It has a pretty hardy musty taste ... there is some fruit but not sweet... more fragrant. Some bcurrant (cassis). Drinking well now. Don't hold for much longer.
Dusty entry, muted Pinot bouquet. Plenty of tannic grip in the mouth, still going strong 5 hours after opening. Brown-black notes to nose and flavour: *pain grillé*, asphalt, black plums. Seemed angry - cross to have been woken too soon from its bottled sleep?
