2015 Aspen Food & Wine Classic Trip; 6/17/2015-6/22/2015 (Aspen, Colorado): This graceful-styled, medium ruby wine features aromas and flavors of Bing cherries, baking spices, citrus and sassafras. Light-to-medium-bodied, freshly acidic, seamlessly alcoholic and softly tannic, it has no hard edges but does thin a bit on the mid-palate. The resurrected finish is smooth and medium in length. This Pinot should be at its best over the next 3-4 years. Drink now-2019.
Silky with heavy fruit forward and smoky notes. Medium bodied; aromas of strawberry and tart cherry. Similar flavors on the palate. Fresh acidity, medium-weight, sweet tannins and moderate alcohol. Finishes with substantial length.
Infanticide. Took a full 24 hours to show. I would lay this down for a couple years. If you absolutely have to drink it, open a day ahead. This is REAL wine. Simply a pleasure to drink whatever you think it smells like.
