Superlative Pinot Noir that's silky and elegant, yet complex, deep, and long at the same time. Velvet, seamless texture from start to finish in this wine. Classic Pinot Noir fruit shows deep cherry, vanilla, and ethereal red rose petal notes along with a subtle level of sweet spices. Caressingly smooth in the mouth, yet with an amazingly authoritative level of flavor and density. Gorgeous wine. (Note: the label picture is of the 2010 rather than 2009 vintage.) - HK 2014-06-14
