Dark ruby and with an intense aroma. However I believe this wine is better when it's younger.

A very well made wine, but the high level of acidity made it feel somewhat out of balance.

Not sure how to describe this wine. Closed closed closed. I would expect that the 06 would be about ready but I drank this wine over 5 days and just thought the first four nights it wasn't great. Somehome on the 5th night the aromas really poured out and the flavor profile showed up. This is without a doubt a big pinot that could use another few years in the cellar. And yes I vacuumed the bottle each night to give it a chance.

Sea smoke is a very unique Pinot with "atypical" Pinot fruit almost making the Pinto grape difficult to identify. nevertheless, a terrific wine, balanced and food friendly. Hides the high alcohol content reasonably well.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
