Delicious fruity wine that went very well with beef with brown sauce and a vegetarian dish. The half bottle left was gassed (N2), stoppered and refrigerated for four days. As it warmed, it continued to be delicious, well balanced and wonderful. Glad I still have a few in the cellar. Hope you do too.
Again, a really lovely nose of dried red fruits, spice, earth, dust, leather. Definitely showing its age with brick colors and fruit that is now somewhat dried out and slightly oxidized. Despite the lack of fruit, it is rather complex with secondary & tertiary flavors, and has a nice, silky texture with good balance. The bitterness of a prior bottle was not evident t in this one. Will not score as I think it peaked a few years ago, and is now simply getting older rather than better.
Wow - what a nose! Nice combination of dried red fruits, leather, mushrooms, damp earth and a hint of barnyard. Lean, silky texture with a medium body and a medium finish. Surprisingly sour/bitter (think grapefruit), as I did not expect this based on the nose. Also definitely showing its age as the fruit flavors are subdued and the wine is dominated by the secondary/tertiary flavors. I love everything about this wine except for the bitterness, as it (literally) leaves a bit of a sour taste in my mouth on the finish. I will not score as I think this may be an "off" bottle. Definitely time to drink up.
Drank yesterday and with no notes, but this was a very enjoyable pinot. Showing some age with a brick-ish color, and aromas and flavors of leather and earth that are a nice match with the dark fruit. Solid, medium+ finish. This not a fruit bomb and I enjoyed the subtle, complex flavors and the food friendly texture.
