Definitely cold-weather feel to this light-ruby-colored, lean but focused Pinot. Raspberry and cranberry fruit is almost subsumed in an earthy, very resiny character that has a distant resemblance to turpentine. I liked this interesting wine, and my guess is that some tasters will love it, but it doesn't fit comfortably into my Pinot comfort zone. - HK 2016-03-21
