When given a few moments to expand past initially simple and slightly candied beginnings, the aromas of this involving Pinot seem to deepen and find more richness and range, and the wine's building flavors follow suit with a wide-open mix of ripe cherries and rich oak underlain by a trim touch of firm tannin. In contrast to its tighter, somewhat more acidic cousins, this one flaunts its very considerable stuff now and will make lovely drinking in the near term with savory duck and veal preparations.
