Darkest Pinot I have ever encountered, intense, extremely tannic, very big and concentrated. Surprisingly Nebbiolo like, but very good, I bet Nebbiolo would do well at this vyd!

Deep, rich nose of plums and earth with a lighter palate that contained plums and blue fruits plus a bit of chalk. Very nice.
