Way too much alcohol and syrupy for me.

Expected more. Not much structure and kind of flabby.

Obviously young but after a couple of hours opened up nicely. Enjoyable brunello

Solid Pinot. Nice balance between elegant and fruit forward styles. Probably a little overpriced but still enjoyable and aged nicely.

A little too big and oaky for me. Palate has changed I guess from last time I had a bottle of this wine/vintage in 2008.

Seems to be past its prime a little. Kind of flat. Time has not served it well

Dark brooding Chilean Bordeaux. Memory of drinking this wine in Chile is better than this wine is tasting. Would never buy again.

On the bigger side for a Pinot. Lots of extracted fruit, cherries with a nice acidity and balance.

Not as good as many other Chasseurs, but I'm going to blame it on the vintage.

Big with nice backbone. Slight metallic taste that undermined this wine.

Disappointing. Too oaky for me. I will stick with Antinori's Italian efforts, which are fantastic.

Liked this one slighter better than peters Vineyard from Russian River, but still on the weak sweet side. I know it's not a great vintage.

Decanted for 1 hour along 2011. Tasted together. Both had lively acidity and typical KB fruit and nose. 2009 was just so much better with none of the bite of 2011 I know it's not a fair comparison but wanted to compare a good vintage against a fair vintage

Outstanding Pinot. Ready to drink but even better when heat blew off. Nice bouquet and integration. Black fruit and raspberries.

Super tight and closed initially. Once opened up really liked. Slightly better than expected for a difficult vintage

Straight forward simple, but enjoyable Pinot. Was a little better than I expected for a really difficult vintage.

Surprised at how well this was drinking. Good balance with fair amount of red fruit. Not as full bodied as most KBs but expected this with the cool vintage.

Thoroughly enjoyed and ready to drink. Full bodied for a Pinot. Seemed a little high on alcohol for this type of wine
