Gorgeous Pinot Noir that comes across as both elegant and seamless at age 8. Like velvet in the mouth, beautifully balanced and pure. Complex melange of Pinot fruit - dark cherry, raspberry, plum - with hints of orange peel, sappy pine resin, and a Burgundian woody, smokey background. Coats the palate and lingers on the finish. Magnificent Pinot, but my feeling is that it has peaked and should be drunk within the next couple of years. - HK 2014-11-14
