Exceptionally focused, elegant Pinot Noir. Still fairly taut and a bit closed, but showing super raw materials. The aromas slowly unfold and open over time to reveal deep cherry, floral, and resinous notes, along with subtle vanilla and spice nuances. Quite structured but nicely balanced in the mouth and finish, and obviously more austere than it will become with time. Extremely harmonious and well-proportioned feel throughout. - HK 2012-03-03
