I'm really confused on this one. Not seeing Spectator's 94 or the "light," "thin," or "Burgundian" characteristics in previous reviews. This wine was very dark and nearly opaque, oaky, extracted, and a touch hot until day 2, when it mellowed out a little...pretty much the opposite of what I'm looking for in a Pinot. I would have guessed Grenache or Syrah blind. SO glad I picked up a bottle to try before throwing down on more while on special. Dodged a bullet there. I would say paired with beef or hearty pasta would be the way to go with this one.

Both WS and WE indicated that it needs time to develop, with both reviews being completed in 2009. Based on your experience I would conclude that the bottles I've got lying around would benefit from a bit more time in the cellar. Is that correct?
