Not that reductive, kinda more like thin Pinot, it's doesn't have the advertised dynamics that you want

Maybe time as resolved most of the reduction, but rather than being fascinating and unusual this now drinks like a simplistic Pinot noir.

Chad Stock's brilliant ode to reduction. Savory pilot noir/blaufränkisch blend. Thanksgiving goodness.

Another triumph by Chad Stock. Dimethyl sulfide is the almost deliberate flaw, apparently. But damn it's delicious. Burned toast and red fruit gives way to an acidic, metallic, at times inorganic full stop.

Delicious - just the way I like it. Smells like browned butter with a light taste and a warm chocolately finish
