This wine again reminds me of a grand cru from the Domaine de La Romanee Conti but made in California. The classic forest floor dark raspberry sweet black cherry and floral nose with hints of meat juices and spice is followed by a supple wine with perfect equilibrium a full-bodied mouthfeel tremendous purity and palate presence. This is an extraordinary as well as singular Pinot Noir to drink over the next decade or more.

Intense floral-accented aromas of dark berries and cherry with complicating notes of anise and dried herbs. Brighter red fruits in the mouth which features cherry and rose qualities and mounting spiciness. The most powerful and darkest in character of this set of pinots; the finish is broad chewy and very long.
