Christopher Massie - JJ Buckley, September 2011
Brick red at the rim. Glass coating viscosity. The black Pinot fruit here is married to nuances of fresh herbs and exotic mushroom notes; the secondary nuances of aged Pinot have come to the fore. Additional complexity is... Brick red at the rim. Glass coating viscosity. The black Pinot fruit here is married to nuances of fresh herbs and exotic mushroom notes; the secondary nuances of aged Pinot have come to the fore. Additional complexity is found via nuances of anise licorice and morbier in the wine's highly engaging aromatic profile. On the palate this wine is pure silk with a caressing robe of fully mature gorgeous fruit supported by crisp acidity and a whiff of spice. Fully mature yet glowing this wine continues to offer a minimum of 5 years additional enjoyment. Outstanding.
