    May 31, 2014 - 4th Saturday Group brown bagger (M/M thelostverse): Light color. Opens with a subtle meaty note followed by perfumed cherry fruit. Bright fruit on the palate with a long finish. Balanced and elegant. I guessed Pinot and should have known this was a Burg.

Decent length and good freshness. While lacking a touch of depth, this is undeniably tasty. Still shows a fair amount of structure so probably room for improvement over time given the concentration.

It was medium bodied and the balance of fruit and tannin was pretty good. The fruit had some nice strawberry and a bit of rasberry. The was also some earth.Overall it was very enjoyable.
