Lot of tart on the taste, which mostly goes away when it opens up. Nice Pinot but the price is to too high for what you’re getting
Positives: Pale garnet in colour featuring cranberry, pomegranate, cherry and light tobacco on the nose.
Negatives: Too expensive
Interesting Point: Let it open out or else it will be too tart, and lightly chill it.
Ageability: Drink now or over the next 5-7 years on its own or pair it with smoked oysters.
My Opinion: On the fence
Tasted: September 1, 2019
