Still smoky but settled and integrated. Think Pinotage. In a good way...

Smokey, yet sweet on the nose.

A lil Woody taste. But good for a 2008 opened August 2017.

Lots to say about this surprisingly great wine. Beautifully satin smoky earth. Fruit flavors very muted now, showing the wine's deeper, meatier core. A great example of how good AV fruit and a good bit of bottle age can create the kind of deep, complex Pinot we've generally associated with Bourgogne, these Indian Creek bottles are a second label Navarro created to handle this difficult forest-fire vintage. Worked out much better than expected. I think I'll buy another case.

Was expecting charcoal grill, but actually quite tasty, smoky, but good range of fruit and a bit of earth.
