This wine came across exceedingly well at this most recent tasting. Reminded me, actually, of a central Russian River Pinot in its velvety feel and deep fruit. Very fresh and lively cherry and blackberry fruit, with a good dose of sweet spice and flowers. I don't think of 2010 as necessarily a great Pinot year, but this is one of the best I've tasted. - HK 2015-11-11
