There's an old adage, "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight." Well, I brought a Pinot to a BBQ. On the darker side, particularly for Sonoma Coast, as well as young, so not totally out of place. I would like to think that I certainly would have guessed Pinot blind, but none of group did. Partly due to the profile I'm sure, but I think expectations played a role and this was the last bottle after some very dark Sagrantino, Sangiovese and Syrahs. A Pinot was not expected in that row.

A got a lot sugar off this and didn't show as PN blind. Sweet red fruit and a chalky mouthfeel.
