Tasting Notes
“This hedonistic Pinot is a mind-bending thrill ride guaranteed to dazzle even the most stalwart Cabernet devotees (seriously)! The captivating bouquet displays intense aromas of violets, creme de cassis and spice box. A tour de force, this exquisite example of Pinot Noir is reminiscent of the finest Sea Smoke and Kosta Browne bottlings and shows off waves of dark berries, black plum, cassis, oolong tea, hints of creamy oak and then culminates in a 40 second finish. Although a mere youth, this is already an extraordinary wine that coats the palate with great viscosity and seductive flavors. Enjoy the journey anytime through 2025. Decanting recommended prior to 2020.”
