Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy

Good, tight Burgundian-styled Pinot Noir that exposes its personality reluctantly. Pure cool-climate Pinot Noir aromas followed by somewhat tart, spicy cherry and pomegranate fruit. Some tannin still obvious in the texture, clean finish. Not very warm-hearted at this point, and it suffered significantly next to an outstanding Ponzi Reserve from Oregon. - HK 2010-01-01
