This showed well last night, too. Dark fruit profile that is turning more into the red spectrum with good savory flavors and dryness. Shows some subtle spice, and pure Pinot fruit. I wouldn’t call this elegant, but it’s also not a brute. Somewhere in the middle. I am not going gaga over it, but it’s definitely a very solid wine that will probably hold for quite a few years as it has a sturdy structure. If you can get it inexpensively, it’s a buy, but at anything over $45 I would hesitate.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
