Im not sure what happened here however, this wine did not live up to its 94 point rating. The appearance and the nose of this vintage was good; characteristic of a Pinot. However, the tannins, acidity and dry finish were out of sorts for this varietal. I would suspect that given the age, perhaps it has passed it's peak. In any case, while it is drinkable, I think it's 94 point rating was a bit enthusiastic. I would give it 90 points at best. Save this one for cooking.
