Alcohol by volume: 14.3%
Price at time of purchase: $19.99 (K&L)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

A beautiful, full, silky-smooth Pinot Noir, utilizing grapes from four different central coast counties. Classic Pinot flavors with excellent purity and length, especially for the price. Cherry-laced fruit with a nice dose of dried roses, sweet herbs, and a resiny, minty edge. Even has a distant touch of that complex Burgundian barnyard character. It would be hard to find a Pinot this good elsewhere at anywhere near this price. - HK 2011-12-29
