Double decanted for four hours. Tight as a drum. I was afraid of this. The last bottle I tried was very awkward. This one was just locked up. Obviously going through a dumb phase. It started to open a little after six hours. The best part of this at the moment is the finish, which goes on for 45+ seconds. You can tell the stuffing is there. The first bottle I tried two years ago was one of the best Cali pinots I've ever had. I think this will get back there. Give it 24 hours or a year.

Big fruit, dark and ripe cherry. High alcohol- 14.7% makes this wine however "hot" and alcoholic diminishing the fruit balance and making the wine less food friendly. Too high in alcohol for my taste- an unfortunate trend.
