Principal varietal(s):

This wine may not be politically correct at close to 15% alcohol, but it is absolutely rich and delicious, the alcohol buried in magnificent, pure Pinot flavors. Full-bodied yet wonderfully balanced and fresh in the mouth. Complex wild berry nose with touches of rose hips, Asian spice, and dark cherry. Still young but very round and full in the mouth and finish. It will undoubtedly improve, but it's already drinking beautifully. - HK 2011-07-17
