Insane reduction. Could go another 10 years. Wildly beautiful. — 2 months ago
Popped and consumed from decanter over two hours.
Shocked at how dark this was in the glass. Pretty close to a tinge of purple. If poured blind, I feel like it would be tough for most to call this what it is. Fairly “big” in style, like big and ripe Oregon style. Dark fruits abound aromatically as well as damp earth/forest, and lots of floral notes too. It channels a mix of red, blue and black fruit on the palate, with a good vein of acidity. Mineral, and a small bit of iron. Don’t really know how this ages in regards to evolution, but this can appeal to New World Pinot fans at the moment due to the concentration of the fruit.
I’m glad I got this for $50 4-5yrs ago, but the price now is crazy. — 4 months ago

Drinking the tail end of another dinner here. Losing a bit of vigour after two days opened, but still showing heaps of textural richness and chewy energetic fruit. Plums, cranberries, spice, and earthy nuances. Impressively long finish. Wow! Sadly, the bouquet was the let down, whereby the expectedly floral notes have disappeared at this stage and a light musk has started developing. Nevertheless, I can’t discount that this was an excellent aperitif. — 7 months ago
