($70) Good deep red-ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, blackberry, dark cherry and cola, with a slight roasted nuance. Supersweet, supple and very ripe, with layered flavors of strawberry, raspberry, creme de cassis and candied licorice complicated by a note of chocolate liqueur. This very ripe and rich pinot reminded me of a 2003 Burgundy. Very long on the aftertaste, with lush tannins. This is 14.9% alcohol, vs. 14.7% for the Southing and Botella bottlings. An excellent set of pinots from this producer.

Color: Perfectly Burgundy red, purple-red core, red edges
Nose: Forest floor, camphor, black cherry, cinnamon spice.
Palate: Full, yet supple black and red fruits: Blackberry, cherry liquor. On the bigger side, but not palate exhausting. Great wine!

If you like big fruity syrah, you will like this pinot. Not sure if there is anything in Bourgogne like this, but it's resemblance to Bourgogne or OR pinot is not noticeable.
