Nearing five years of age, this Pinot tastes fresh as a daisy. Crisp in acidity and silky in texture, it has ripe flavors of raspberries, strawberries, cherries, cola and exotic spices. Could surprise with some time in the cellar.
This is a good Pinot but it has some problems that keep the score limited. There’s a mulchy earthiness, a sharp, dry mintiness, that limits enjoyment of the underlying cherry flavors, and which is unlikely to age out.
