Well, here it goes, my first tasting note ever not written on a napkin. I opened the bottle and decanted for 30 minutes before taking a drink. This wine is medium deep purple, cant see through it. First sip; impression was maybe this wine is past it's time, only time will tell. Bitter finish; yikes, did i let this wine sleep too long? I put the glass down and finished watching Two & A Half Men. Next taste, this wine is starting to open up a little. While this definitely isn't a typical CA jammy pinot that puts a smile on my face, it doesn't make me want to pour it down the drain. This wine would have been best served 1-2 years ago; it's not the worst Pinot Noir I've had but for the $35-$40 I laid down for it, I know I didn't give it a fair shake.
