Nice body. Dark pinot structure, strawberry, nice tannins, and finish. Consistent with my 2011 tasting last month at the winery, except this has a bit more strawberry. The winery guys told me they make these to last 5 years. Seems the strawberry flavour gets more apparent with time.
I liked it a little less than previous, the nose had plenty barnyard earthy flavors. The fruit is still very strong, the wine had about the same performance as last time, just felt more jammy this time. Probably need to consume these sooner rather than later.
Overall this was pretty good. This has loads of ripe red berries and fruit. The nose really didn't show up until 30 minutes after opening. Next time Take the bottle out of the cellar to warm up a little, then let it breath for an hour. This was good for about 2 hours, before the acid over took the wine.
