Into it's sixth year of evolution CdC's "old vines" Pinot is showing garnet in the glass. Fruit is in the red berry spectrum but fading. Beet notes as well. It's earthy with a sanguine minerality that leaves a salty impression. Tannins still persist. Quite hot with a sour/bitter finish. Not well balanced and seems to lack an overall finesse. At this stage I don't think there will be further integration, so drink em if you got em. 2012's are part of the next Vintages release - will be interesteing to compare. March 2017.
