Acidity, red fruit, blue fruit, green pepper, pepper, tobacco, and oak. Thought it reminds me of more French than Napa cab as it was a little under-ripe. B+

Cherries, rhubarb pie, tobacco, cedar, herbal notes. B+.

Matthiasson held this wine back because it's big, bold, and grand, unlike most RRV Pinot Noirs. I would age this wine for 8 to 10 more years. Its kind of equivalent to a grand cru Burgandy, which needs a lot of time.

This is big wine. Originally decanted on New Year’s day, corked without gas and drank on Sunday, 4 days later. This is big wine, probably should have cellar another 8-10 years.

Black fruit, licorice, Smokiness of burning charcoals, herbal notes and finishes with oak. Tannins are dry, with a hint of burnt tobacco on the finish. A- 91
