Red floral cinnamon nose. Dried red fruits; strawberries, pomegranate, cranberries, mushrooms and forest floor. Super high adcity. A little lean on finish with strong minerality. This wine will require patience.

First, it's Joseph Drouhin—you can buy anything from this place and you'll be happy. Second, it's Burgundy Pinot—light, playful and bright and pretty much everything California Pinot scene is trying very hard to be. Third—this particular vintage is superb. 2011 from Burgundy is a guaranteed "Yes!".

Good, not great, but I'm not complaining. Slightly oxidized and porty, I definitely didn't dump it.

Clean, bright red berries and baking spices up top. Some stem notes supporting that. Young, grippy tannins and plenty of acidity. Needs time.

2011. Pretty wine. Pure delight from start to finish. Fruit, acid, texture, finish -- it's all there. Silky mouthfeel leaves you wanting more.

From taste: Lean, bright cherry, candlewaxy nose with a defined earthy spice and blue flowers. Very fresh and sleek style, a fine spiciness, hardly any discernable wood, fair concentration and zesty finish. Quite elegant and well-made stripped down burgundy, $79 though is over-doing it.
