The second wine in my Pinot Noir tasting flight….. Different, somewhat funky. Not the earthy, ass of donkey kind of funky that I like. Just funky. I finally got over it and started to enjoy the red fruits that came out on the initial palate, accompanied by some subdued cherry flavors. I did not notice any tannins(see previous post) and thought the balance was very good. No noticeable alcohol is a great feature of the this wine that really grew on me. Initial funk aside, I enjoyed the new world twist on his varietal. A decent finish and I’m done tasting this 4 star effort. 89 points (see my previous post on ratings).
