Drank over two days. Very zin like, it this was tasted blind that would be my first guess. Drinking well in my opinion and should have a couple years left. My wine in the glass showed ruby red to the rim and had a lovely bouquet.
Not my style of pinot, but as a wine, I loved it. Big, warm, chewy, gingerbread nose, velvet on the tongue... I dig it. Felt like it had nice age, but by no means was it dead. It was happening. Decanted and enjoyed over 3 hours.
Held up very nicely contrary to naysayers. Strong deep fruit. Completely different style from Oregon Pinots consumed before this bottle. More Zin-like than PN, but that is K-B style. Either you like it or not. I, for one, appreciate both styles. Very enjoyable. I think it was wise to consume the Oregon Pinots before this. No reason to hold back on this but I think it could easily last another 5 years and continue to please.
