Purchased on sale (more accurately, a terrific sale) from the winery, this is an outstanding Pinot Noir that has several years of positive development yet to go. Elegant, sleek, yet rich and mouth-filling. Sappy red raspberry, marischino cherry, vanilla, violets, subtle spices highlight the complex perfume and flavors. Beautifully balanced in the mouth with lots of grip. Long, youthful finish with fine tannins. Has the feel of a young wine that is just coming into harmony. - HK 2013-03-13
