Initially grapey, but after breathing, drier, smoother and very well rounded. Less grapey than the 2002 vintage, drier but no more tannin.
nice berry,smooth ,light bodied
This was a ruby color wine. Spiced cherry nose with a soft smoky finish. Well balanced plum flavor with soft tannins. I’m not usually a big fan of Pinot, but this one pleasantly surprised me.
