Lovely, cool-climate Pinot nose of red cherry, raspberry, pine resin/turpentine, charcoal. Lean in the mouth, short in the midrange, and with a somewhat abrupt finish. I don't know if this wine is going through an awkward phase at age 6, but it didn't have the silky richness found in so many D-G Pinot's, and especially in the generally outstanding 2009's. - HK 2015-01-29
