I’ve now had 4 bottles of this wine over the past 6 months and I have come to the conclusion that it is on a downward spiral. I don’t know what is going on with it, but it is not good. It reminds me of how the ’04 Tarrington Pinot went funny too after initially looking very promising. This wine was aromatically quite odd: rhubarb and dry stalks, red cherries, tomato leaf and a chemically edginess that didn’t dissipate. The palate is quite thin, red cherries and acid, a touch of sap and some bitterness on the finish. The fruit is gone, or at least gone into hibernation, and the delicacy that once was there has disappeared.
