Lost my notes again.
We love this producer, but best drunk in its youth. Tannins and acid have all but left the building. Nice heady perfume, combines with sweetness and length, but has little to no structure. Red currants on the nose and palate. Complicated wood treatment adds the most interesting dimension. Get after this pinots now.

Not as tight as the 12, but still excellent at $39.99!
The nose presents with roses, sandalwood and maple syrup.
The palette is not quite as viscous as the 12, but it still possesses an untypical weight and mouthfeel. It's heavy, but balanced. We taste cinnamon, violets and soft brown sugar. The oak treatment is in harmony with the acidity and 14.2% abv. We are loving this.

This is an excellent pinot in every way. It has a Burgundian nose, but on the palette it is sublime, lithe and textured. Its candied cherries on the palette dominate. I just soiled my pants.

Impressive Pinot Noir Peirson Meyer has had a Identity Crisis. In years past they operated with 2 different labels. The other being L'Angevin !! That label is now on the back label!!!

The oak is bit overpowering, but no complaints about its prettiness.

Big new world Pinot- kept right up with full bodied cabs. Oak still prominent and balanced perfectly with the fruit and acidity. Charred raspberries, orange peel, cola, and molasses. One of the best Pinot deals out there IMO.
