Bright medium red. Raspberry, red cherry, cotton candy, wild garrigue, brown spices and blood orange on the fascinating, highly complex nose. Sweet, lush and seamless, with a round texture given shape and lift by ripe acidity. Offers an utterly seductive blend of red fruits, herbs, earth, leather and game, finishing with a saline quality and building sweetness. A more complete pinot noir than any of the single clonal bottlings in the series, which is as it should be. Became even richer and wilder with 24 hours in the recorked bottle. Really amazingly complex California pinot in a Burgundian style.
