BRW and meself had our Thurs prayer meeting and these were the other participants. These wines really need a LOT of time. The 99 is just now starting to get some secondary nuances. Nose not quite developed but shows depth of the brite cherry fruits, some spiciness, and a tad of barnyard. On the palate the high acidity and sweet tannins are present. A beautifully structured Pinot that will shine in another 3-6. 92/95 12.5% alc. 28 thru the wine club. The 01 is a mirror image that shows the 2 years difference in bottle. Killer juice. WW
