Medium to full bodied with a viscous and slightly unpleasant mouthfeel, this showed a red fruit core with pepper and baking spices. Lacks the acidity at this point in its life to be completely balanced, but still gave a fairly nice showing. I think it's probably on the downward slope of its development now and would drink in the near term.
Big, burly, California Pinot, but in balance and very nice wine. Definitely not subtle, but a great companion for the right food. Expressive fruit, structure, tannins .. but everything is well balanced. Great wine!
