2003 Leyda Pinot Noir: Floral, but acidic.


may 10, 2009: we spent this mother's day with victoria's parents and sister emilie. we wanted to try this pinot again after we had what we termed a bad bottle in st. louis a week earlier. the bottle we had tonight had been properly chilled in victoria's dad's wine cellar. it was fruity. we compared it to a bottle that had been stored at emilie's apartment in st. louis. the one that had not been properly chilled had a slight raisin flavor. the more the wines warmed up, the more acidic they became. we decided that when it comes to pinot noir, it's best to drink it relatively quickly after it has been opened. $20-30 range.
