Time is of the essence! I drank this sometime ago and got none of the funk and Burgundian element. Clove, oil and anise fill the nose. Raspberry, toasted oak with some tart cherry fill the mouth. A lot going on in this wine, nimble and light but offers so many element.

Pisoni is a special place. Ripe but not overripe great balance and depth. Easy to like

Tart cherries and strawberries on the palate with some spices. Medium bodied and fairly balanced tannins/acid. A rich Pinot, I find Pisoni to be very consistent in profile from year to year. Which to me is a great thing. Very good wine.

Pinot night. This thing is as fresh as the day it was bottled. No way you think this is 14yrs old. Delicious and really fun to drink.

Nice expression of the SLH. Big on the nose, gamey element, cardamon and cinnamon. Bright acidity on the front of the palate balanced by firm tannins. Almost meaty yet smooth. Fleshy ripe finish. Nice.

Still primary, starting to show some soy savory character. Delicious.
