Tasting this juuuust at its peak, paired with truffle risotto and pan seared duck breast this wine is absolutely a knockout with this dish. The body was surprisingly high-medium, with the tannins calmed over the years, and a nose of tart raspberry, plums, and roses wrapped in dirty leaves. Earthy, but floral and sweet. Fantastic legs, and a silky, elegant palate of velvet, dark plum, dark cherry, and just a hint of the tannin lost to time. This is a top 10 wine for me, hitting just perfectly. Try now because it won’t be there forever. @byronwine #pinotnoir
