This may be one of the best Pinots that I have ever tasted. Medium body,very smooth, but tannic as well. Excellent.

I really wanted to love this one more. It was excellent, but not quite as good as the regular single vineyard RRV offering.

Love the entire crew at Donum, great people-Big nose explodes with tight crushed black fruit with a brushy cedar oak taste. Gripping tannins that give it a long finish. Great all around!

It has definitely receded with age. Much different than the 2012s I enjoyed several years ago. The fruit is muted and it’s a bit more astringent. But it’s a lingering finish and it has a nice mouthfeel. The alcohol seems more pronounced now though. I liked it as different but I prefer the youthful version with more pop and balance.
