    I very much question color and tannin extraction during this process. In my very limited experience of three harvests working with Pinot Noir, the juice never looks much different after a cold soak than it does coming out of the crusher/destemmer. Once the ferment kicks off, you start seeing massive changes. The aromas seem to change during cold soak, though.
