Had this wine at Bouchon in Santa Barbara on Mon. It was $75 off the winelist. It was decanted for 20 minutes prior to first taste. Tn is on the last taste at approx. 75 minutes decanted.
Dark garnet in color to watery rim. Nose is amazing with violets, cherry, and rosemary aromas. On the palate, this wine is gushing with black cherry, blackberry, sweet toasted oak, and earthy flavors. Tannins were shedding, firmer on the first glass. Finish is outstanding in length. Beuatiful Pinot that is masculine, yet not really a fruit bomb. jb Rating 94 pts.
