A rather un- inspiring bottle which started off a bit muted and monolithic. Our hopes for improvement as the wine set in the decanter were diminished; after several hrs as the wine continued to loose whatever little fruit was evident early on. I kept it refrigerated for several more days hoping for a comeback which never materialized.
I don't see how anyone could think of this as Burgundy. To me this wine was more about the wine maker and less about the vinyard. The nose was the most interesting part of this wine...but only for the first 20 minutes...after that it was kind of blah. This was so extracted and dense that it could have been a California Pinot Noir to my thoughts. Just a mess...I hope time saves this wine. Right now I would buy this if I saw it in a store for $30/bottle.
