Knox Knox.....Who's There

Au Bon Climat 'Knox Alexander'
Pinot Noir 2005 Santa Maria Valley,
California, U.S.A.

Don't you just hate it when the last glass is the best? The bottle was opened and aired....and showed all the fighting qualities the 'Knox' has. The 2004 was more approachable a few months ago. Big bold flavours here....and tannins are tightly packaged..of all the ABC wines..this always shows a masculinity.

Next day..the last third of the bottle..raspberries on the nose...
still slightly funky...juicy flavours..and now showing why it is so highly rated. I promise to open the next 'Knox' 2 days in advance in future.
Points 17.5+
