The acidity is there, and the tannins. Both together make the wine young, immature, gritty, but they enable the wine to age. There's a terrific core of cherries, rhubarb, cola and pomegranates. It's a big Pinot, dry and gutsy, yet never loses its silky, lightly tannic expressiveness. You could drink it now with a few hours decanting, but it's best left alone for five or six years.
