Very ripe, with sweet cherry, spicy oak and earth notes matched to a rich, full-bodied frame. Good concentration here, with pure, sweet Pinot Noir fruit, finesse and a firmly tannic finish. Give it time to come together. Long aftertaste of sandalwood and violet. 110 cases imported. (BS)
Here the wood has become intrusive and while this wine has an excellent track record of absorbing the wood with time, this is sufficiently tender and forward plus it doesn't possess the superb density of the old vines Ech that it may or may not ever absorb it. My score offers the benefit of the doubt because as noted, this wine really does have a consistent history of eating its oak. I look forward to tasting it again from bottle.
