Drinkable, but only just. This wine is well past its prime, and fading rapidly. What fruit remains is in the pruney spectrum, and there is a volatile vinyl note in the nose that isn't pleasant (my wife insists that the bottle is corked, but it doesn't smell like TCA to me). From a warm vintage like 2010, I would expect more stuffing and balance for the long haul, but this one missed the mark. I've always found HoP pinot noirs to be hit and miss in terms of quality, and this is yet another illustration that they are not quite in the top ranks of Niagara producers of that finicky variety.
