Reply to "TN: 2003 Le Cadeau Pinot Noir"

We opened a bottle of the 2003 Le Cadeau last night and found the color to be youthful and vibrant. However, something is going on with this wine as the fruit has gone from lush and sweet, to a rather tart finish. Has the 2003 Le Cadeau shut down, going thru a metamorphosis, or prematurely ageing and losing fruit? We had no time for decanting, and it may have opened with sufficient time in the decanter.


My opinion is that it has shut down and just needs more time. Again, I see no evidence of ageing in the color, and I expect to see a more favorable wine with more time. I just hope I'm right, because I still have a case+ in the cellar. I might test the progress from time to time, but my target date for this wine is 2011 to 2013, and maybe longer.
