Soft, luxurious mouth feel to this rich Pinot Noir. Complex range of aromas and flavors suggesting ripe plum, cherry, rhubarb, cassis liqueur, brown sugar, violets - and even stone fruits like apricot. Quite earthy and with the flavors muted and subtle. Will be loved by people who like well-aged California Pinot's. I liked the wine a lot, but probably would have absolutely loved it about 3 or 4 years ago when the wine was fresher and more fruit-driven. I wouldn't be inclined to hold this one any longer. - HK 2021-05-03
