Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Noir, 2018

Liked it a lot, did not love it. 

It’s potent, it’s a gut punch, it has none of the ethereal lightness of Burgundy.  There is tar, yeast, and very sharp pepper notes, cranberry on the finish.  The professional reviews said smooth and silky; we definitely totally, unequivocally got nothing smooth.  In fact, it could do with a spin on the lathe.  Having said that it was still delectable, and I would say we opened it too early.

[Jeepers: Look at the spots on that wine glass!]

Price: From the vineyard back in the day, $44.

Market Liquidity: Wine evolves; this one just not quite enough.
