2001 Fiddlehead Cellars Pinot Noir Seven Twenty Eight Fiddlestix

Happy Valentine's Day! Zelda and I enjoyed this half bottle tonight at Cafe Kabul, located at Rat's Restaurant at the Grounds for Sculptures in Hamilton, NJ.
This pinot has aged very nicely, and could quite possibly be on the down slope now, but it was still tasty. Lots of red fruits on the nose, with the slightest hint of brettiness. On the palate notes of more red fruits, especially strawberries prevalent, with a nice, not overly complex finish. Hints of plum came on the finish as well. All in all, if you have any of these, I would suggest drinking them in the next 2 years or so, but I think you will enjoy them! 90 points!
