I've been told by a wine maker and a couple of different distributors that adding Syrah is not an uncommon thing in CA and OR Pinots blends. As the wine maker in question said to me, if a winery is buying several tons of Syrah, but does not bottle a Syrah or Syrah blend, where it is going should be obvious. With that in mind my opinion is that happened with this wine. I'm not trying to smear Belle Glos but that's my impression...for all I know I could have the grape wrong and it's another grape. If this is really 100% Pinot I am baffled at how they made this. It's has serious port like qualities to it.
I also have a couple of other bottles (it was on sale cheap)
