This was the second of my two bottles, and it was singing from the get go. Pop and pour, no sign of age. Big fruity nose, creamy blue fruits with some cranberries. On the palate, evolved over the hour. Fruity to start with, tightened the last 20 minutes and opens back up again for my last half glass. Nice finish, balancing acidity. Drinking well, but has a lot of life ahead.
Tasted over two days and it was a bit better the second day having toned down the WS RRV fruit punch flavor profile. No earth or Burgundian qualities that I am looking for in a Pinot. Quite extracted but a decent acid finish to provide some balance to this Pinot that is too overripe for my tastes.
