Decanted about 1 hour. Definitely went better during dinner than on its own. Very nice KB Pinot but nothing special. I don't feel holding any longer is warranted. This one is ready and I haven't seen any improvement over the past year.
No formal notes. P&P and consumed over two hours. The dominant, ripe fruit from early in this wine's life has subdued and integrated well with the subtle spice, black pepper and floral notes. There is still a dark and red fruit dominated profile, but this is in overall balance. Took about 30 minutes in the glass to start showing really well after the first pour. The wine seems a bit hollow/short on the mid-palate transition to the finish.
Uncle Rob's Visit: Impressive showing and liked my sips of this one, but perhaps due to its rep it disappeared rather quickly and I didn’t spend a lot of time with it. Rich and layered with bold flavors and aromas of ripe blueberry and wild berries accented by spice and espresso.
