Still an infant. The cherry rocketed out of the bottle as soon as it was opened. There was no question about "which fruit" this was. Wow. Creamy character, beautiful color. This time, I'm *really* going to hold on to my remaining bottles. Can't wait to see how this matures.
Several things struck me when I tasted this wine - big black cherry, big raspberry, some smoke, and (especially for a Pinot), creamy mouthfeel. Almost unctuous. If it's this decadent now, I can't imagine how it'll be as it ages. So I got two more bottles to be safe. It is still very much a baby. :-)
Thought young this was VERY nice. Big and long finish. This was every enjoyable. This is even more special because there is only 48 cases made. Get it if you can. Scary how good this can be with time. I'm going to try not to drink them up.
Ruby with medium viscosity and massive legs in the glass. Tight with stems, cherry and pepper on the nose. Medium body with cherry, plum, cinnamon and initial brown sugar on the palate. Tea and sarsaparilla on the back. Tight grip. Short finish. Has potential, but needs time.
