BetaP, how did this show?
Disappointing. It gave little on the nose at first; an hour later, it started to emerge, then by the time of dinner ( approx. 2 hours), it was good, but not up to expectations. In my experience, it should have showed better right out of the bottle. I scored it 87. Hopefully, it is bottle variation as I have another.
3 years ago, we opened a bottle of '80 Jensen and it was stellar, exceeding expectations, consensus 90+. Calera pinots generally age very well.
