Opened and recorked before a restaurant meal, but then left at home on the way out the door. Judging by the tastes before and after, that was just as well, as this lacked the likable finish and balance of most any other W-S in my experience. Lots of fruit, but not especially interesting or expressive right now, although there is plenty of substance and no sense of artifice here. Most promising and pinot-like off the nose. A bit past prime on day 2, but the integration was welcome. Missed the sweet spot on this bottle, let's try this again in 2019.
I had this after dinner on 5/2/14. It had a rich, deep and wonderfully expressive bouquet of black raspberry, strawberry, cinnamon, clove, cardamon, vanilla, spice aromas. The palate was rich, complex, layered and satiny smooth with flavors of black raspberry, strawberry, black cherry, cinnamon, clove, cardamon, pepper and cola…really awesome stuff
