Bright red. Tightly wound red berry and Asian spice aromas pick up a suave floral nuance with air. Silky and precise, offering energetic raspberry and bitter cherry flavors with a touch of star anise. A suave, seamless Pinot with no excess weight. Closes tangy and very long, with silky tannins and lingering spiciness. (JR)
*Cellar Selection* Scents of cinnamon and red-pepper candy come up quickly, leading into a wine with terrific purity and focus. The raspberry and cherry fruits are clean and sharp, beautifully defined and balanced. Delicious young, this wine is set to develop further complexity if well cellared. Drink now through 2030.
Open-textured, light on balance and appealing for the dark plum and toasty spice flavors, picking up peppery nuances as the finish lingers with intensity.
*One Star* With a slight smoky overlay that sets it apart from its mates and a softer, more open feel, this bottling is otherwise directed by straightforward, slightly plump, red cherry fruit. It is measured in ripeness and somewhat juicy in manner, and, even if not a wine that will fade away soon, it is free of any youthful angles or edges and invites early drinking.
