An absolutely top-notch Pinot Noir. Superb richness and complexity. Aromas and flavors of dark cherries, sweet oak, tar, roses, a profusion of spices. Extremely long finish. Seems to attack all sides of your mouth with a multitude of taste impressions at once. Elegant and harmonious even in the midst of all this power. Lingering finish. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. - HK 2002-01-14
