Principal varietal(s):

Fabulous Pinot Noir from a "Grand Cru" site that would now be in the Fort Ross-Seaview appellation. Sensationally rich, complex nose that glides between fruit, floral, spice, earthy scents. Perrforms the magic trick of being almost opulent in the mouth - with palate-coatiung layers of blueberry and raspberry and myriad spicy notes - while at the same time feeling remarkably graceful. Hits my textural sweet spot for Pinot Noir, and is one of the better Pinot's I've ever tasted. - HK 2020-11-22
