Deep, ripe and intensely varietal. Pouring forth in a cascade of hazelnut, red raspberry, vanilla cream scents over quieter notes of white pepper and lead pencil/minerality. It proves nearly as forthcoming on the palate, with a luxurious elegance, texture and polished feel of juniper berry, allspice, red raspberry, vanilla and floral spices. Picks up weight and becomes more intense as it airs, this is going to be a truly memorable Pinot.
A mere 280 cases were made.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
