Bright, sour cherry, touch of oak. Classy stuff from the dream team of Ligier-Belair and Etzel

I really the the philosophy behind these wines. Made by Mike Etzel and Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, the fire comes from Jory soils, the flood from willakenzie . A powerful, big, and unmistakably new world pinot -- but remarkably balanced and not without grace. Fleshy raspberries, cinnamon, and scorched earth. I could drink many of these -- if however they weren't so aggressively priced...

Great Pinot. Very high toned friuit. Silky texture. NOT 2 messengers. This is Chapter 24, the Liger-Belair, Etzel collaboration.

Lose 10-20% of production due to native yeast. Volcanic soil.
