Bright and deep purple in color with a bluish edge, the first nose opens with lovely aromas of sweet cherries in kirsch, fragrant rose and herbaceous rosemary, hints of lavender and boasting fresh cherries. Smooth and lush yet restrained and nervous, the lovely palate travels with a smooth beginning, vibrant core of fresh dark cherries and marionberries, wet bedrock and closing on an elegant finish sustained by silky tannins. The quintessential definition of a beautiful pinot noir, very complete and showing promises of getting better over time.
Vinous
  • v95

Shimmering ruby-red. Explosive, mineral- and spice-accented aromas of fresh red berries and flowers, cherry pit, along with hints of blood orange and incense building in the glass. Shows excellent delineation and energetic lift in the mouth, offering powerful raspberry preserve, bitter cherry flavors and a suggestion of spicecake. Finishes with a jolt of juicy acidity, building sweetness and silky tannins, leaving succulent red berry and floral notes behind, eventually. (27% new French oak)

A smooth, supple, yet muscular wine, this brings blackberry and black-cherry fruit, a vein of cola and a dusting of chocolate powder. It's already drinking quite nicely, with well-integrated fruit and barrel flavors, while a nice lemony acidity underscores the finish.
