Close to a wow wine. Has the classic Pinot fruit and texture, but distinctive, too, with an earthiness characteristic of Mendocino. Lots of layers. Really, really good stuff, but drink now - hard to imagine it getting better after 2015.
Visually more brick than ruby, excellent nose rich in berry fruit. More red fruit on the palate leading to a superbly elegant finish. Perfect complement to grilled Copper River sockeye salmon and asparagus.
An excellent example of SoCo Pinot Noir. Wonderful stone and berry fruit balanced with solid acidity and tannins. The superbly long finish is a delight. I have one more bottle and will cherish but try not to wait too long. This is a superb example of a top quality wine and vintage.
