Consistent with earlier tasting notes. Consumed two bottles at dinner with friends. Paired well with a variety of starters and main courses from lollipop lamb chops to grilled salmon. Perhaps some notes of mushrooms or forest floor when first tasted, then cherry, red berries and spice. Very pleasant and enjoyed by all.
Wow, was not expecting much after the first two bottles. This caught us off guard, as it reminded us of past (more impressive) Flowers bottlings. Wonderfully silky with fresh summer berries and an ample backbone to stand up to our roasted chicken and vegetables. (B)
Tasted over the course of about 2 1/2 hours while decanting. On the nose cherry, strawberry, black pepper and a touch of smoke. Up front on the palate its all fruit (cherry/strawberry) until the finish that offers some spice. Light in color and nice acidity. There is still a lot of fruit left but it was missing the earthy characteristics that give an outstanding pinot depth.
