Chalone Vineyard 1998 Pinot Noir (Chalone)

Fans of upfront fruit will have problems with this earthy, tannic wine. Fresh out of the bottle, the aromas are of cherry tomatoes and herbs, and the wine tastes loamy and herbaceous. But an opened bottle retasted 24 hours later had evolved to yield plenty of sweet, spicy black-cherry fruit, suggesting the possibility of midterm aging.
