This wine from the 1999 vintage is coming up on fourteen years old, yet it is remarkably dark and young-looking. An aroma of raspberries, strawberries, and a touch of oak rise to greet you from the glass. The palate gives you that mix of flavors that only comes from mature pinot noir. There is a touch of extra acidity and tannins on the palate and in the finish. That, along with the color, makes me think this wine still needs more time. Then again, I had it on its own. Served with dinner, it might be perfect.
Double Curly Moe. Delightful!
