This is a beauty. Shimmering ruby-violet luster, essentially transparent, the color stays deep at the rim, indicating this still has many years of life ahead of it. Medium bodied and showing ripe red cherry-like Pinot flavors that are ever-so-slightly succulent, but without any heat or warmth on the back end . . . . . love it. The tannins are snuggly fitted under the cashmere blanket of fruit. The Pinot clones/selections all sing in unison, with no one fruit flavor/savory character/mineral tone shouting above the rest of the chorus. The fruit tastes pristine. This is a great example of cool-climate Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.
