A better showing than last time. Perhaps because this time I knew what to expect. This had baking spices and particularly clove and allspice on the nose for days. The acidity was just slightly too much to make it out of balance but otherwise nice showing.

I was surprised by the low scores this one got but i absolutely love how this is drinking right now.

I thought this would be more in the style of a Bevan Pinot. It was good, but I’ve had better at this price point.
