Community Tasting Notes (11) Avg Score: 90 points

  • Been in my wine cellar for years. First glass through coravin. Still quite cold. While the color was decent, the wine was thin, closed down with virtually no nose. The nose and flavors hinted however hinted at something better to come. After being open all night this inexpensive pinot from a rock star vintage came to life! Nice nose of red fruit with cherries and a hint of strawberry coming through while the medium bodied pinot had a nice flavor of cherry - not dark cherries mind you... Also, strawberry notes were there, too. Not a complex pinot, but one I enjoyed drinking. This is however, beyond it's peak maturity. While still with life, if you have any - drink up this year.

  • Funky aromas on opening. After an hour settled down. Well integrated, forward tannins, medium bodied, delicious red fruits, cherries, earth, robust. Fruit flavors still present forward, bright flavors but definitely maturing. Medium finish.

  • Lots of funk, heat at opening. After 1 hour decant settled down, but still light to middle body and depth, slightly acidic. I don't see this improving above the current status, which is slightly better than prior bottles.

  • Bon: Hints of cherries. Still tannic. Probably needs more cellar time.

  • Just like the last bottle, this performed great after sitting on the counter for one hour. Black and red cherry, earth, cocoa, forest, and a little cedar on the nose. Black cherry, spice, herbs, vanilla, and earth on the palate. Good acidity. This bottle seems a lot more earthy and less fruity than previous. Needs a lot of time. 90+
