Powerful Pinot here. Out of a magnum and once it opened up, it was in a really nice place.

One of my favorite California Pinot producers. So damn good. Needs time and air to develop especially this was so young.

Wow! Initially had a little gamey nose but it evolved into a beautiful bright elegant but powerful Pinot.

Young but a ripping explosion of black cherry soda and salami. The high Tannis on the finish doesn't allow you to really "get there" yet!

The flavor profile reads Pinot with black cherry and some violet aromas but the body, richness and fwiw listed alcohol @ 15% reads Zinfandel. Very ripe and rich and maybe a touch hot. The pleasant tannic grip does keep this from getting too unbalanced
