Lovely, well-made, medium-bodied Pinot, showing a sleek quality to the texture and ripe fruit aromatics. Tastes balanced, with pretty black cherry, spice, vanilla and blackberry character.

Reserved, understated, earthy and full aromas with precise, pure and detailed aromas plus fine length all in a slightly austere wrapping. Though the description admittedly does not bring to mind the qualities of great burgundy, the delineation, precision and inner density are such that this should mature into a very fine Clos de Vougeot though this is not for those who like lush, seductive burgundies as this will take its sweet time coming around.

This medium-to-dark ruby-colored wine was outstanding. Profound aromas of deeply ripe red cherries, blueberries, and blackberries steeped in hoisin sauce are followed by a medium-to-full-bodied, beautifully ripened, and silky-textured core of black fruits, beef blood, porcini mushrooms, and hints of earth. This wine's outstanding finish reveals loads of supple tannins complemented by blackberry flavors.
