mary elke Pinot Noir Anderson Valley & Mendocino County, 2006

Not my style. Nothing wrong with being big and fuller-bodied, but this was fruit juice and alcohol.  No tannins, no acidity. Disappointing. Typical aromatics and okay mouthfeel, but some alcoholic bite on the backend killed it.  Over-oaked in the finish – Vanilla, and Mrs. Butterworth. Over time, oak became dominant and sugarfied. Sorry.
