To my taste, this wine was was sort of mute until after about an hour in a decanter. Then it had a delicate nature I like in Pinot Noir, with somewhat less intense flavors of dark red cherry / kirsch, sap, tangerine, rust, and not much else. While it has classic Pinot flavors that are nicely balanced between fruit and acid, it’s not that complex and doesn’t have much earth or funk. I had hoped for more for the price.
