Medium to dark ruby, just barely translucent. Medium bodied. Nose of red fruit, a whiff of alcohol and a touch of smoke. Flavor profile is mostly cherry and raspberry, very smooth and a touch of vibrant acidity. Decent life left at from magnum as this was. For me it was on the edge of the range of style of Pinot Noir I like. ABV a little high and almost over-extracted and darker than I prefer. Certainly well made and pretty much in balance though lacking in some of the secondary, earthy flavors I really enjoy.
This wine was just singing. Pulled out as a pre-dinner drink with some friends from out of town. Didn't take detailed notes, but remember it being wonderful. Great nose. Good maybe slightly floral characteristic. Some nice fruit. Right in the perfect window. All the flavors were well integrated and pulled together. Friend we shared with is a general fan of Burgundy and was impressed with the similarity in style. Would drink up though - I can't imagine it getting better.
Absolutely delicious again, with a great mouth feel. Slightly better than the first bottle, which was itself superb. Burgundian nose with a note of fruit. Fresh cherry and chocolate, with a hint of raspberry and cinnamon.
