The wine is exceptionally dark in color, has intense aromatics that mingle the ripe fruit characteristics of the vintage, the darker, brooding qualities of the site and the wonderful traits that whole cluster fermentation brings both aromatically and texturally. This is a fun, jumpy, rich and muscular wine that should show well in its youth but has the balance to be an excellent cellaring Pinot Noir.
