This is slightly more elegant and fresher still with really pretty earthy and ripe red pinot fruit that also merge seamlessly into sweet, mineral-driven and precise moderately full flavors that are beautifully textured and well detailed on the strikingly persistent, ever so slightly dry finish. This is unquestionably a stylish wine by the standards of the vintage and this will require at least a decade to come into its own. (Drink starting 2013)
Saturated medium red. Distinct suggestions of surmaturite to the aromas of plum, currant, loam and chocolate. Sweet, dense and lush, with deeply pitched flavors of minerals and chocolate. Wonderfully concentrated and deep wine, finishing long and sappy, with big, dusty, sweet tannins. With extended time in the recorked bottle, the wine's extravagant ripeness became less apparent, and pungent notes of strawberry, cherry, minerals, flowers and earth emerged. A great vintage for this bottling and likely to be long-lived.
