Rose petal and violets persist throughout this complex, deeply nuanced Pinot Noir. The palate is richly berried, but swathed in a musky, earthy perfume that's intoxicating. Bristling acidity and fine, filigreed tannins round out a long finish. Stunning now, but likely to integrate its subtleties further through at least 2025.
