Not as well balanced as 2012. This bottle needed a little more time in the bottle to soften it a bid

Wow - the nose is incredible on this, which is what I’ve come to expect from Ceritas pinots. Almost smells like watermelon jolly ranchers, aperol, Uber-high toned red fruit.. seductive. Pretty hefty tannins for Pinot, some raspberry and cinnamon on the palate. Pure red fruit again. Has the stuffing to age a long time - sit this one down.

One of those lithe & masculine lookers that's surely going to be a devastatingly sexy silver fox.

Floral, red fruit, crisp, acid driven... could certainly imagine mistaking this for a burgundy.
