WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot!

This, alongside the ‘09 Rivers-Marie Summa OV and the ‘12 Marcassin, were all tied (in my opinion) for WOTN. This is a massive Pinot and benefitted from some air time. Cherry liqueur like enter which then turns darker to a black cherry baked pie, spice, and candied blackberries. There was a sweet, but not rich, note on the mid palate that reminds me of a mixed berry cobbler. Lengthy and flavor packed finish. Just beginning to enter a prime drinking window. Killer bottle from

I opened this with some trepidation but it really over delivered after a two hour decant. Texture and concentration were gorgeous. The only detraction was the overt oak on the finish. But I really think this will integrate in another 5-10 years.

Nice, but much simpler than anticipated.

Very elegant and seamless. Still a baby but opens up quite nicely. #pinotnoir #wine #rp100

What can I say? Seamless! Likely even better in a few years.

Insane concentration! Mocha, baking spices, and and super deep cherry core, even though it is showing very hot at almost 16% alcohol. a very interesting bottling from PM.
