Glorious Pinot, hitting my Pinot sweet spot in just about every respect. Drinking perfectly at age 7, fresh as a daisy, though it shows a distant hint of amber at the edge of the glass. Ripe, round, complex, satisfying from start to exceedingly fine and long finish. Overflowing with dark cherry, raspberry, sweet cinnamon spiciness, pine resin, savory dried herbs. Seamless mouth feel, liquid velvet texture. Just about as delicious as Pinot gets. - HK 2015-06-09
