Weyerbacher Rapture

Jo and I opened our first bottle of Weyerbacher Rapture we picked up at the release in September.
Lovely tart and sour nose, nothing harsh and not too acetic. Wow, pretty delicious. Tart up front, some slight vinegar notes, and a sour finish. Even spending a year and a half in the barrel, I didn't get much oak or vanilla although some reviewers claim to find some. No bitterness or harsh tannin notes from the pinot barrels. Some dryness in the finish though not too dry. All around I really enjoyed this one and thought it was quite a good offering from Weyerbacher. I enjoy the Riserva but this is definitely way more balanced than that vinegary monster.
