Burgundian nose, crunchy black cherriesand spiced greenery, just a bit hot. On the palate, slight spritz... Little fruit. Structurally, its got the stuffin for a few more years but the fruit just isnt there to compliment it. Drink yesterday.
Sweeet red fruits in the nose, very elegant, with a touch of vanila and mint, soft tannins and sweet finish that end with a touch of tartness. Would have score this one higher if their was more concentraiton.
Wow! If every wine in my cellar were like this one, I would be a very happy man. Starts off very sweet on the palate with lots of raspberry and dark cherry fruit...works into red and dark summer plums with just a hint of forest floor and subtle mushroom...even a touch of milk chocolate. Tannins are extremely soft at this point, yet this wine is still beautifully balanced and worked extremely well with food. Parker says this wine is past maturity, but I would say well-stored bottles are still drinking very nicely. I purchased this on release for $25.99 (I would love to buy Pinot this good for this price now!) and have kept it cellared at 52 degrees until now. Beautiful wine!
