my second unimpressive bottle, a year after the first.
thought i'd re-try to see if i had a bad bottle or my palate was having a bad day but no such luck.
big ripe red fruit on opening. rich black cherry, pomegranate, and cola, but after an hour all the positive fruit aromas faded. what was left was black tea, bitter spice, and boring oak. the Abv. also reared its ugly head with some aggressive heat.
perhaps my store got a bad case, but i will not be returning to this PN with so much competition at the ~$20 price point.
One sip of this and I'm thinking that I need to go back to the beautiful Laetitia winery to get more of this Pinot. Medium bodied with cherry, earth, cola, and smoke flavors. I'm happy to report that this probably has 0% Syrah.
