The surprising aspect of this wine relative to the barrel sample is how much oak it is presently displaying, particularly on the nose. While it remains superbly elegant in every respect with its stylish, astonishingly complex pinot fruit, the oak is certainly not invisible though the flavors remain marvelously intense with a sappy, and quite beautifully detailed finish that is moderately yet finely structured. As originally noted, this is more of a medium weight effort underpinned by sophisticated tannins and impressive length. While it will age for years on its balance, after an hour of air, this became almost surprisingly supple and approachable though I will continue to hold my bottles.
