Firesteed 2005 Citation Pinot Noir (Oregon)

In some vintages (such as 2004) the extended bottle age given to the Citation Pinot works in its favor. In this latest release, it has subtracted from, rather than added to, rather ordinary fruit flavors. Leather notes in both scent and flavor come up against raisined fruit. Tannins are tough and astringent, and there is a stemmy character to the finish. Drink up. Paul Gregutt
