This is simply a beautiful bottle of pinot noir. Now at peak, it shows a delightful mix of black cherry and black raspberry with increasing depth and complexity as it moves towards the finish. Perfectly integrated now, it comes off like black velvet. Blackberry, light spices, earth and a light mineral note on the finish. Retains good tannic structure throughout, but fully integrated - no rough edges whatsoever and good acidity on the finish. While this wine has several years of life in front of it, there's nothing to be gained by holding it further. I would probably drink it in the next 18 months or so as it's drinking too well now to miss.
Beautiful nose of berries and a variety of floral notes. Medium bodied and mouth-coatingly rich and round. An outstanding mix of mostly blackfruit, emphasizing black cherry and black raspberry. Good length on the finish with nearly fully integrated tannins providing solid structure. Strengths of this wine were its balance, integration and richness; it was a real joy to drink and reminded me why I like pinot noir so much. I think this wine is close to peak, but considering how much it deepened over the four hours we drank it, it should stay at this level for awhile.
Very nicely balanced. Blueberry and wild berry framed by creamy oak. Tart cranberry, good acidity. Nice dusty minerality on the lingering finish. Tasty Pinot, but 50/50 on a revisit given the fairly high tariff.
