Light color with slight browning on the edge. The nose showed some burnt cedar quality and dried fruits of red cherry. On the palate the dried red cherry persisted. This wine has super depth, and a big almost brawny chewy tannin level. Very nice acid level for a pinot. Amazing stylish terroir traits of character filled dustiness &minerality on the mid-palate that showed much better than its class, that I usually need to step up a bit to find. After two hours it just got better, but alas it was almost gone. A wine with a tremendous sense of `place'. (tasted twice with consistent notes) Very regal.
