Smell oak. Typical chard. Don’t usually drink chard. Found in the fridge. Outside dinner with Atlantic char. And maybe better the next day with a veggie burger. Better than expected especially after a long day. 18$

I ended up liking this more than expected. This was Cirq’s inaugural vintage. I normally enjoy a bit more crunchy/bright Pinots, but this showed well in a flight of all 2011 Cali wines.
Likely at peak (this has integrated to the point where I don’t see this improving in profile), this was high toned and very aromatic, but only after 30mins (was initially fairly muted). Potpurri, violets, bright red and black berries, and lots of spice. Improved from bottle over the course of two hours. Initially broad on the palate, it dials everything in toward the finish. Juicy fruits and dark plum. ABV pokes out just a bit. Best around cellar temp. Pop now and enjoy. — 17 days ago
