The first was a mere two days after it was delivered, so I suspect a bit of bottle shock was at play there. Overall, a decent but not great California Pinot; may or may not be worth the price, depending on your affinity for the mysterious grape.
I thought it was interesting that your first review said that it needed another year in bottle, but you opened the second bottle only two months later!
I'm still hanging onto mine and don't expect to open them for a while, so I'll pass on this offer. But these guys do make some mighty tasty juice.

A good easy drinking Pinot ... once it opens up. IMHO it needs about a year or so in the bottle... I still have 3 left from the 1st offering and that's how long I'm going to wait before trying another one.

If you taste metal it's probably TCA (aka corked).
