Stylistically a different beast when compared to the 2009 which I had at the same night. Less extracted and more Burgundy like. In fact in a blind tasting a lot of folks would be hard pressed to identify this. Dark cherry 🍒 quite earthy. Hint of orange juice. Cloves. Too young at this point 10/2019 needs 4 more years.

Strawberry, pomegranate & spice that I could definitely see holding up another 15 yrs. time to get another bottle.

Wow, will this wine be singing in 8-10 years. Terrior is already peeking through. Just as impressive as at the winery a few months back.

Enjoyed with rack of lamb and Branzino at Bottega in Yountville.

It's a lean young Pinot with pedigree. Still not knitted together. Big acidity. Lot of oak. A bit of cardamom.
