The Effects of Drinking a 10 Year Old Pinot Noir

You can drink a 10 year old Pinot Noir. The aging of Pinot Noir is quite unique and it will depend largely on the individual's preference. Generally, California Pinot Noir is ready to drink right away and may even improve after a few years in bottle. But wines with more age on them tend to have flavors that are softer and more integrated, with less of the bright fruit flavors often associated with young wines. Older vintages can display earthy, mushroom-like notes as well as dried spices like cinnamon, clove or nutmeg. They often have a fuller body with smooth tannins and an oveall creamy texture. That said, some bottles may not have aged well and could be oxidized or overly tannic. If you're unsure about the quality of your wine, it's best to open it and give it a taste before deciding whether or not to drink it.
