Wine experts say this White wine delivers as advertised despite the commonly known aromatic issues earlier in the bottle. Juicy plum and pie cherry dominate, with just a touch of spice. Peppery and herbal, it has well-delineated tannins and is drinking well now. In a brilliant play on the vintage, this wine opens with a dark, then brings in fresh aromas of licorice, cassis, blackberry and cherry. It`s big, racy and determined, with a mouth-coating texture and flavors of black cherry, raspberry, cocoa and espresso. Earthy, deep and smoky, this dark Pinot Noir has earthy, leafy aromas backed by black cherry, dark berry and plum. It`s intense and assertively tannic, with years of aggressive youngness and leather left in the shell. Hold until 2015, and should continue to evolve over time.
