Absolutely beautiful Pinot. Intensely flavored, velvet-textured, seamless wine with oodles of exotic, smoky, spicy wild berry fruit and notes of cola, sweet flowers, charcoal. Still in its infancy, but completely delicious even now. I'd rate this a tad behind the spectacular '09 Dutton-Goldfield Pinot from this great vineyard, but this wine is sensational in its own right. - HK 2012-05-20
