I disagree vociferously with the previous reviewers who claim this wine has gone off or is less than a joy to drink. Opened and decanted, poured immediately. Reddish purple fading to brick at the glass. Wonderful nose of red fruit and light earth, and terrific balance makes me believe this wine is in its prime. Graceful finish lasts and tapers elegantly. A ver nice California Pinot.
Completely out of sorts on opening, and almost went down the drain. Comes together a bit with 30 minutes in the glass. A bit of sourness on nose and palate, and a touch of heat on the finish. Serviceable if not particularly enjoyable. This has a mouthfeel to suggest that it was a well made wine, but this bottle just isn't doing it for me.
