great @KLWines Burgundy bargain...do others making notes know what French Pinot is and looking for CA? Brick red color, bright. Pomegranate, cherry, some earthiness, lively acidity. Paired with roasted chicken, it did very well. Well done.
Opened it up 30 minutes before pouring. Like last time, the first sips were thin, disappointing... but then I served a dinner of roasted chicken stuffed with onions and rosemary with brussel sprouts and suddenly the wine had a lot of character and a good finish. I've read other's reviews and they say the same... so it should tell us that this is not a tasting wine by itself but rather a wine to eat with a full body dinner.
From Memory... Reductive nose, dark red fruits. Midweight palatte with black cherry and some earth. Very primary and not all that harmonious at this point. Agree with previous notes about it pairing fairly well with food, just not sure it'll ever be really good. Gonna put a couple down for 5-10 years and see.
