Silverdale, WA 13% alc. (Purchased on 4/9/14)
Clear pale ruby with the slightest bit of orange tone around the rim. Nose shows pure black cherry fruit, smoke and cinnamon spice with some earthiness. In the mouth, it’s light in texture with little tannin and excellent acidity; the flavors show more dark cherry, mushroomy earthiness and spice. Has an understated Burgundian feel to it in nose, flavors and finish…including a touch of dirty socks funkiness.
I like it, but in comparison to some other decent Pinots that have shown up at GO over the last few years, I feel that the price is a little steep. So if you’re inclined to give it a try…buy it during the sale.
