Surprisingly nice wine. Lots of fruit (blackberry, raspberry, cherry), menthol, forest floor, spice, floral on the nose and palate. Very rich and full-bodied. Some noticeable tannins. Very well-balanced.
Lots of cherry and green apple on the nose and on the initial attack. Noticeable oak. Sharp acid on the midpalate. Generally a little rough around the edges and w/o the polish and smoothness one might expect at this price point.
At the BA lounge in London and not sure how long it has been open. Full on open nose, concentrated Pinot aromatics, not oaky strong but extracted strong but still very interesting. On the palate it has fullness , rich fruit and some wood dry tannin to spoil the finish, bitter finish to a full open fruity nose. Not bad at all. 89-90
