Much higher, and appropriate fill than first bottle of the case. This was very nice out of the bottle, but after 30 minutes was even better. After about and hour it started to show just a touch of bite on the finish, but overall this is drinking very well and showing off it's ripe red fruits along with some secondaries. Very nice wine. A-
First bottle and lowest fill in the case. Popped and poured. A touch cloudy from the ride home, but dark red with some age showing on the rim. Nice dark red fruit on the nose, with earth in the background. Ripe and full on the palate, with nice complexity but more about the fruit tonight. Very good and next bottle may be better. A-/A
Just a ordinary tasting (Chris Home): Nose: Some red fruit alongside some spicy notes, oak, iron and some mushrooms. More on the rustic side. Close up with more time in the glass. Palate: Again very masculine, with not much elegance. Very "earthy" flavours on the mid-palate. The tannins are still very present. Not really my cup of tea. Maybe I just couldn´t "get" the wine. Needs more time.
For my taste a bit too much influenced by sweet and slightly mawkish appearing strawberry flavours. Nose not all to present at all. Overall it seemed juvenile, however the acid appeared rather moderate for a 2002. Not quite my cup of Pinot ... unfortunately
