The consensus here is that this should have been gone in 2010 but I don't feel bad at all about waiting. Just another too short drink by year on CT. This was delightful and delicate, extremely well integrated pretty much right out of the bottle. Wonderful old world earthy style, probably the fruit has settled down quite a bit from the youth of this wine, but as far as I'm concerned that's just fine. Only have the one bottle, sadly.
A lovely showing for this Oregon pinot, with tell-tale pinot noir aromatics. Bright and elegant and very clean, there's still a good core of stemmy, cinnamon pinot fruit. Really lovely, but lacks complexity. Drink soon. 90-91 pts.
Unfortunately this had some very slight notes of TCA but the fruit aromatics and richness did manage to come through. I waited gave this a little time to see if i was correct as others did not seem to agree and the musty aromatic hints of wet cardboard were definitely there. The wine was a bit hollow which also confirmed my suspicion. We consumed this fast and moved on but based on what was there i would suspect that sound bottles would be very good.
