Still primary, starting to show some soy savory character. Delicious.

Just phenomenal, as it should be. The nose, while penning its own signature, speaks to the rest of this wine's character and evolution. Flavors abound- but the mouthfeel is what this Pinot can use to sign for the wine that it is. Full-bodied and lush with a sort sense of what it will be next. Every nose-Full grows as memory in the mind- and the rest of it makes that memory come alive.

From magnum...This 2010 is in a great place right now. Started off a bit tight and muted but over the next hour plus, it really began to shine... Lovely nose of dark cherries, violets and crushed flowers. Boy what a wine and the best domestic Pinot noir I've had in a long time.
