2001 St Hubert's Pinot Noir

Bought with a group, figuring it would minimize the risk, I was surprised to find a Pinot of this age that still has some primary fruit character and structure remaining.

Opening with some soft cherry aromas, savory forest floor and mushroom like aromas soon followed. Tannins were very soft, but still there in quantity and structure holding the wine together with a touch of remaining acidity. It was definitely a pleasant surprise.
