About 1 hour decant (chunky/fine sediment). A dazzling burnt red garnet with good bricking. On the nose: Big nose of ripe cherry, spice, smokey earth, eucalyptus, little tobacco hit at the end. Taste: a creamy, elegant, balanced medium plus body wine that hits you with layers of flavor... red cherry, herbs, orange peel, mushrooms. and a powerful cedar strawberry long finish. Kaboom! A beautiful aged Burgundy.....I mean Sonoma Coast pinot!

Balanced and showing its age. Tart cherries and a little barnyard creeping up

This is a continuation of the wines that were at the fourth Friday gathering in Fort Worth, TX. As @Shay A mentioned there were too many wines to taste them all. Here are a few other great ones that Shay did not post.

It was fun to drink a Marcassin Pinot with some age on it. Thank you

The best thing I’ve ever tasted. Immediately joined the allocation list.

WOTN for me. Tasted 30+ Pinots at the Manhattan Beach Wine Auction advisory Board meeting dinner on a Monday night - it's Going to be a fun event.

Turning that brick color. Longest lingering taste of a wine in recent memory. Super subtle, earthy with a cherry situation on the palate...A smooth one.
