Garnet with a tinge of brick. Initially lots of savory herbs and mushrooms on the nose, more dark fruit as it breathed. This was elegant, mature - but not old, with subtle strawberry, red raspberry, orange rind, and savory notes that are just beautifully done. Ken Wright's Pinots do age well. I did not get any of the heat others have recently mentioned. Went well with Salmon. These are excellent young but also are interesting to keep and drink over time.
At 10 years of age this wine is still fresh and lively on the palette with vibrant, dark red cherry, accented with baking spices the dominant flavors. But the alcohol still overshadows the finish just a bit too much.
