Very light color. Potent nose of sea salt and cherry: light-style Burgundian. Smooth entry with more cherry and some orange rind that fades into cola and chocolate. The finish actually has some length despite how light this wine is. This isn't for the big Cali fans.

Light bodied, black cherry flavor, dirt and tar, good acidity, more of an old world red burg which I prefer. Gave this plenty of time to breathe as I wanted it to get better but never got to a full harmony.

JRad hit it on the head. Not for big the Cali fans. As noted, light bodied. Mine looked a little brown at the edges. Soft in the mouth with none of the bright fruit found in most Cali PNs. Interesting with the bottle age, but I don't think I'll be going back for more.

I concur. It was definitely a unique wine to try, especially with the age. It probably isn't a multi-purchase affair though. I may, however, try another to see about consistency.

While it is true that I am more of an old world wine drinker, I feel like the comments here are somewhat misleading. This is not a "light-bodied" wine. It is lighter than most Cali Pinots, yes, but it is also 14.3% alcohol. I would describe it as a medium-bodied red that has enough acidity to pair well with a wide variety of foods, especially this time of year. It's also delicious and a good value at $20.
