Community Tasting Notes 14

    September 14, 2010 - Tried it on pop and pour and it was ok. The balance was off, too much earth/leather and not enough fruit for me. That and a nose that was really off, almost unpleasant made me think I had a bad bottle. That was over a week ago and I'm finishing the bottle tonight after keeping in the fridge, vacu-vinned. So tonight, while the nose is still off (a distinct petrol note that I do not like) .... on the palate, it's wonderful. Excellent balance with the fruit having come back strong with the earth/leather apparently having blown off. Makes me think I will definitely decant my next and last bottle. The taste profile features good red fruit, still enough earth and leather and a good shot of acid that makes it go well with food, and really well with chocolate mousse.

    April 2, 2010 - Drinking fantastically right now on pop and pour. Great extraction, nice black raspberry, strawberry, and cola. Typical twiggy pinot finish. Very nice, especially at this price.

    October 3, 2009 - Unimpressed upong opening, definately benefittedfrom decanting. Blueberry, with some black cherry undertones on the nose. Nice full body with rich fruit, but comes across as slightly hotter than your typical pinot.
