Disappointing - especially in view of all the positive reviews. Decent nose of strawberry and rhubarb, but it was green and tart on the palate and lacked depth, richness or complexity. Surprisingly, despite the lack of fruit, it had a somewhat creamy texture. Short, slightly bitter finish. Overall, I found it rather unpleasant to drink. Perhaps it was simply a bad bottle, and the next one will be better, but in meantime, I will give the score I think it deserves.
With notes varying and my own experience with SRH Pinot I knew what to expect, except that's not what happened. Yes, it's fruit forward but not sticky sweet, the ripe strawberry and cherry have almost a savory quality. There's fantastic flavors of herb, tarragon, and dried sage across the palate. Excellent depth. This might be better than the Machado bottling which is 3x the price.
