Opened on July 7, 2011, we were surprised by the vivacity of this old Pinot. A lovely bouquet of flowers and red fruits jumped from the glass at first pouring. On the palate, the wine was unusually profound at launch, and surprisingly tart, with sour cherry flavors and a nice complexity supported by a pleasant acidity. Warm, full and supple, with a silky texture and a complex medley of flavors that included sour cherry, earth, black walnut, and forest moss, the wine finished with delicacy and finesse, and an extended presence of fruit. The finish was gently dry, with a lingering and pleasing tang at the end. Nose and palate stayed lively and interesting over two hours.
