If I didn’t know better I’d have bet this was a Burgundy. 1er cru, Grand Cru? Not sure because if I be damned, this is Cali Pinot! Wow. This is pure terroir. This nose has some baking spice and thyme. Let’s throw in some olives and orange peel, too. Then that palate is black tea, Rosemary, olive, plum, lavender. So much goodness in this stunning bottle. Yes!

Complex bouquet and smoke on nose, great weight, red ripe fruit

This was really good, probably could have used some more time, though. It was right on day one, but opened up somewhat on days 2 and 3. Loved the flavor profile. (Note: I had intended to open the dominane eden and opened this by mistake. What a pleasant surprise!)
