At 14.4, this shows a surprising delicacy and balance. Oak comes across a little stronger than I'd like but it's still thoroughly drinkable. Regardless, at $60 retail, it's way too expensive compared to some equally priced peers who regularly outperform it.

Rich creamy nose full of a plethora of sweet berry compote fruits, vanilla yoghurt. Palate has succulence, prescience, really very good!

Gorgeously toasty nose, classic pinot cherry notes. Elegant and detailed with great balance. A bit monolithic, but fun to drink.
