After finishing of the two Forlorn-Hopes, I cracked:
1. OjaiVnyd PinotNoir ClosPepeVnyd/StaRitaHills (14.0%) Oakview 2003: Med.dark/bit murky some bricking color; strong toasty/charred/Fr.oak slight mousey/funky some cedary/pencilly/oldRed slight black cherry/PN/Burgundian bit fragrant/complex nose; bit tart/tangy/metallic/drying out rather toasty/charred/oak slight black cherry/PN slight mousey/wet Army blanket bit tired/cedary flavor w/ light smooth/drying tannins; very long some tart/tangy/metallic light black cherry/PN/earthy rather toasty/Fr.oak/pungent bit complex slight wet wool finish w/ light drying tannins; some interesting old Pinot things therein bu pretty much on its last legs.
A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. This was a Pinot made back in Adam's old/bigger style. His current Pinots are much more restrained.
