This time we let this one breathe a bit before diving in and it paid off. Deep garnet or violet in color and very rich flavor profile complete with bright black cherry and plum fruit. Some notes of dark chocolate and spice in the background. Good length of flavor and persistence. Clear acidity and ruby nose.
This is the first Pinot we opened when the Rucks came over to visit. It presented beautiful color and an excellent nose. In our effort to get into the evening i probably did not let this capture enough air before consuming. Even a half hour in the decanter would have made a tremendous difference. By the time we were at the end of our glasses and the bottle this wine was drinking wonderfully. Great flavor combined with excellent structure and balance. Well worth obtaining another bottle to enjoy at a bit more leisurely pace!
