Community Tasting Note

  • JonnyG Likes this wine: 91 points

    February 25, 2015 - A dense, weighty and robust Pinot, vibrant and forceful. Notes of plum, Asian spice and concentrated cherry, smoky and ripe. Chewy tannins with no overt oak. Surprisingly good relative to my own expectations from past bottles not reviewed.
