Lilacs, violets, crème de cassis with deep profound fruit. The age is definitely speaking up tonight in this 2005 Bannockburn Pinot. After about 10 minutes in the glass a non-subtle smokiness appears but after another few minutes it disappears again. For sure there is plenty of complexity to be found in this wine. The palate adds an incredible balance but also a magnificent spiciness. Perfect elegance and for sure a beautiful wine!
Definite change and improvement over the four hours since I opened this until this note. The spritziness that Thierry and others comment on has diminished and there is more evident cherry, plum, orange spice, forest floor. Some pleasant smokiness. Medium finish.
