An excellent food wine so don't expect your typical Sonoma Coast candied Pinot. Seemingly incisive acidity that doesn't have enough fruit to balance it out, and the alcohol feels higher than the stated 13.9%. Really hard to rate this... quite excellent with food, and very good without if given enough air (and then perhaps not too much...). Went well with smoked duck breast and not so well with a slightly acidic butter lettuce salad. 88+ points
Beautiful wine. Red fruit driven with fine tannins. Paired well with a multi-course new years eve menu: smoked duck salad with melted leek tart, lobster bisque, rack of lamb with parsnip puree and a chevre cheesecake with roasted strawberries.
