This 2013 starts out light and bright, filled with cherries and berries. The longer it's open the deeper, darker, and more delicious it gets. Long, lingering finish with subtle acids that follow along step for step. Would love to see it in five years. Still a big baby. 13.7% abv.

Structured and layered red/blue/black fruit. Oak is noticeable, but not obnoxious. Worth the price? Maybe, but it is ridiculously good.

More taut and focused. Great now but could use a little time in the bottle. Floral and reminiscent of dried herbs and tart red fruits. A little bit bigger tannin profile but still soft on the palette

Not a big Pinot fan, so my rating is probably a bit harsher than deserved. That being said, this might be the best Pinot I've had. Light bodied, with nice mineral, black tea, and anise notes.
