There have been few Finger Lakes '06 reds that I have really made a huge impression on me (with some notable exceptions). I wonder what the '05 version of this pinot would have brought?

Sounds like a far cry from the full bodied, high alcohol, almost purple, CA pinots they recommend at the local liquor stores out here. I will have to give it a try when I am out there in a couple of weeks. Incidentally, you haven't dished the dirt on your poor dining experience in the Finger Lakes unless I've missed it. Can you give me a hint so I can avoid that one?

I've been drinking wine for a long time, but trying to discern each wine's unique characteristics is a new challenge for me. Thanks for your insight.

Wow, this might be the lightest-bodied red wine I have ever had. That said, once my palette adjusted I found this to be very enjoyable. I didn't pick out mushrooms but I did get classic pinot notes of cherry and some barnyard. This wine had more character than most of the '06 Finger Lakes pinots I sampled recently.
