Robert Skalli Pinot Noir 2006

Member Review by drdebs:

Flat aromas and flavors. Some sour cherry. Worried that this was too recently bottled to actually give a fair assessment--cork was pale pink. Sat it on counter recorked but not preserved overnight. Now there is sweeter cherry, but hot alcohol. Will try again on day 3.
