Review:
"A toasty, savory Pinot Noir that's full-bodied and mellow with the supple embrace of tannins providing the cheeks with a chalky veil. At a lovely stage in its development, moving away from the simple primary fruits of cherry and damson to its secondary stage, but there's still room for flavor evolution over the coming 5-7 years."
