This is the ripest of the winery's 2015 Pinots and was given an extra boost (40% rather than 30%) of new oak. Supple and dense, it's packed with deep pomegranate, strawberry and plum flavors, along with orange zest highlights. A toasty, tasty finish brings a licorice note. Drink now and through the 2020s.
