Since I've last written a note on this wine, it has softened some and shed some of its youthful exuberance while still retaining its Sea Smokeness, which is to say that it's still fairly forward with bright, dark red fruit, cola notes, earth and spice. The oak treatment is abit heavier than I prefer, but overall, a very nice effort.
Nose started with strawberry and cherry. Started a little hot, but calmed right down after 15 minutes in the glass, turned into that beautiful earthy fruit forward coastal Pinot that we all love. Paired this with mushroom soup, and man was that spot on. Still has another couple of years, but why wait.
