Really young now, this vineyard block bottling needs a little time to come into its own. Tasted in February, a combination of acidity and bottle shock has made it brittle. But it’s a very good wine, deliciously flavored, with a medium-bodied silkiness and Pinot’s exotic sensuality.
Dry, earthy and not showing a lot now, this closed wine needs decanting or a bit of bottle age to open up. Presently. a cloud of tannins is hiding ripe cherry, cola and tobacco flavors. Hard to predict where it will end up, but the structure suggests a year or two in the cellar.
