2005 Lily Pinot Noir
My advice is you need to give this one at least thirty minutes of air time for it to be drinkable, and could use a few hours to really come to life. I was thoroughly disappointed at first, but it’s opened to a rather delightful wine. This one ran me about $20.
Earth, funk, and tar on the nose.
The palate has raspberry and lots of earth and oak. A touch of cola, maybe some plum, perhaps blackberry, all with an herbal background.
The finish lingers with anise and earth.
Not bad at all. At $20, you certainly won’t do better.
