Of the Pinot Noirs we work with, this is on a very different soil and has its own signature. It reflects older-style viticultural choices (clones, rootstock and planting density) which I feel are well-suited to the site. Upon opening the bottle, beet root, cinnamon, slightly floral notes are there. On the mouth, it has good richness with great continuity, upward trajectory and long finish. On day 2 and 3 an open bottle settles into more of a dark cherry core and becomes a seamless unit on the palate. I think it has an extremely good upside to bottle aging.
