Gary's tasting notes

Smokey and classic Burgundian-like nose with earthy and gamey qualities... this has the potential to be very interesting. Creamy and weighty on the palate with little hints of smoke and cigar-character coming across. Great balance and very serious! Beautiful tannin structure and top soil, with gamey and earthy qualities... this is for the savory, not the sweet lover. Very Burgundian and not for those new world pinot lovers. Beautiful floral notes compliment the finish. I want to eat this wine as much as I want to drink it. The complexity and nuances in this wine justify its $50 price tag.
