Wonderful purity and elegance in this full-flavored, beautifully mature Pinot. No rough edges, yet regally structured and mouth-gripping. Complex melange of Pinot flavors - black cherry, raspberry, vanilla, pine resin, sweet spices. Not showing any old-age effects even at age 8 - fresh and mouth-tingling. The balance in this wine will hold in there for some years, but I don't see it improving from its current pinnacle of flavor. - HK 2015-02-20
