Top Notes For
Gil Krakowsky

- [ ] Fragrant nose. Distinct fresh plum notes kind of surprising for a pinot. Those notes along with musky dark flowers, Palo santo and sandalwood dominate, buttressed by a wet earth, wet leaves and petricore note, a whiff of Smokey mineralogy, an undercurrent of caraway seeded rye bread that is both delicious and opens pairing possibilities. . Soft and silky with plush resolved tannins and good medium acidity. Not transcendent by any means, but really and complex tasty for what it is and punching far above its weight. It is a bit hollow at some moments, but that comes off to me as ore petricore freshness than the or flabby. Drink up and enjoy. Not getting better but probably has a couple of years of reasonable drinking
