Ripe and seductive with cherries and sweet cranberries, this young, tight, stylish Pinot has nothing but clear sailing ahead. There's excellent concentration through the midpalate, a light touch with the new oak, and beautifully textured fruit throughout. Love it now or leave it for later; you can't lose either way.
