An unfortunate representation - no, production - of Pinot Noir veiled in new oak, weight and alcohol.

2012 vintage. Smoky red cherries on the nose along with sea spray and pomegranate. Those notes are backed up on the palate, which dances across your tongue. Great wine, but not for $175 a bottle.

Perky but forgettable. For as much as I have sampled this - I just don’t get the hype. It is Good, indeed. But not Great. Better values in Pinots abound in this environment.
