This volatile Pinot Noir from Rhone Ranger Tablas Creek initially displayed a lovely, floral nose redolent of violets, roses, red cherries, and hints of spice. After having been open for only an hour or so, however, the wine started giving off sherry-like odors more characteristic of a wine suffering from excessive oxidation. After having sat on the counter for a day, the wine's oxidative qualities seemed to have diminished, and some of the floral/fruit aromas had returned. On the palate, the wine is soft, with floral flavors accentuating light strawberry fruit.
