This started out thin, harsh and overly acidic (a rare complaint from me), a consequence of popping and pouring right at cellar temperature. As it warmed and gained exposure to air, it fleshed out and came more into balance, becoming a pretty pinot noir with cherry, cinnamon, earth and mineral aromas and flavors. However, it was surprisingly tannic — something I almost never get from Loire PNs and not from a bottle of this wine consumed 18 months ago, either. Odd. Still, I enjoyed it and it was an excellent match with baked wild Alaskan sockeye in a maple/soy/ginger glaze.
