2000 Tandem Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard

My expectations were low with a 19 year old California pinot. They were very much exceeded. Bright, translucent cherry red in color. A light and lively nose of cherries and soft spice notes. The palate showed crisp, bright fruit. Strawberry, cherries, cranberries. Smooth tannins, nice acidity, perfect balance. A moderate finish of bright red fruits. This wine gets better with air. I suspect it may have a couple more years of good drinking. "B+"
