Nice fruit, pretty good acidity but needs time to come together.

Funky. More on the mushroom, meat, leathery side, but the nose on this wine was definitely a bit...."tertiary." Dark black pour. Inky. On the front, quite dark, full-bodied. On the middle, this one started to lose more of its black fruit character and gave more to a bacon fat and leather. The finish of this wine is very rounded and delicate. I think that this is definitely a wine that would have paired better with food. Although nice, didn't have a lot of muscle, and wondering if this wouldn't have been better a couple of years ago.

The aromatics soared from the pop and pour. It took the palate a bit longer, but, it too, showed beautifully. Juicy with cranberries and earth. There is still a hollowness in the mid palate that I noticed a few years ago, but the long finish makes up for it.

Enjoyable zippy and deep SLH Pinot. Great balance and fascinating flavors folded together. Still feels young.
