Salmon color. At first this was a little funky and dull on the nose while the palate had tremendous strength and concentration. With time the nose came around with notes of blood orange, wild strawberry and pastry. While the nose was nice, the palate was incredible. Such incredible concentration, persistence, and length. Truly a world class wine. Had the nose been slightly better, it would have been perfect.
Opened for the wine group, lovely and lively mousse with lots of tiny bubbles, nose of lemon/cherry tart, wet stones, and allspice, more of the same on the palate, big body, delicious with the baked salmon and smoked salmon, melted like butter on my palate, terrific pinot noir finish-slightly mouth drying, complex, and lingered on my palate.
