Healthy ruby red. Much more austere and structure than the 2016. Nice nose suggests dark berries, plums, and a hint of camphor on top of a dense, complex core of roasted herbs and spices and pine resin. Still fairly tight in the mouth, not clear how much this will soften. But still, a tasty, very fairly priced Pinot that I'm happy to have in the cellar. - HK 2020-09-13
