Decanted for an hour. Not explosive on the nose, but what's there is quite alluring. Dark pinot fruit, hints of perfume, resin and a musk funk. On the palate, easy drinking. Not a ton of structure. Generally agree with Burghound re: start drinking it 2017 with two caveats. First, it's quite pleasant now. Second, while probably better in 2017 (or even 2016), I don't perceive the bones for extended aging. I think the peak is a year or two off, but might be rather short, at least for my tastes. FWIW. Good QPR at $25. A nice change of pace for me, given a cellar that trends more heavily to domestic pinot.
Medium ruby color, very clear. Restrained nose of cherry skin, wet rocks, and slight oak. Beautifully balanced between acidity and richness, broad on the palate, long on the finish. Cherry and slight red raspberry. Pleasant dusting of tannin on the finish. Really enjoyed this, and as Burgundy goes, a fantastic value.
Ruby colour with violet rim. Not much fruitiness shown on nose. Mainly licorice, mints and herbs. Light but vivid raspberry and sour berry taste. Good acidity. The texture was quite solid with notable tannin at finish. Not much oak influence. Very traditional. Serious and inward style. Drink well now.
