Dark Garnet in color. Red fruit, smoke, minerals and ? Bacon? On the nose. Red raspberry and some tartness in a an elegantly styled Pinot. Drank with a filet from Ruth's Chris. Well done. Will be fun to see how this does over the next few years. Young but drinking well now.
Nose is cherries with hints of earth. The balance of the wine is very good. Palate is smooth with a lovely finish, can get better with some time, but how much better is open for debate as everything seems to be working with this wine at this point.
Color: Ruby Nose: Red and dark fruit, caramel, vanilla and dried flowers Palate: Medium bodied structured balance, richness and supple acidity and soft tannins Finish: Excellent supple and lingering finish Decanting: PNP Thoughts: We would have to agree with RoyBivens assessment, that the 2008 is slightly better than the 2010 because it kept getting better. We are glad we are wine club members and always get a consistent supply. Looking forward to see how the 2012 Evenstad Reserve compares.
