The Red Whale California Pinot Tasting (The Jackson Arms): Very RRV nose of blood orange, christmas spice and dark cherry. Someone picked up cherry cola as well as a "dark room" smell (this blew off on day 2). Nice and lush. Once can tell this is well made but it needs some time to come together.
Opened too young but wanted to check the style. Very well made. Cooler tones of black cherry and dark plum. Nice complexity with slightly green tannins (some stem?) and acidity. I can see this being special in 5 years. 91+
