This Dundee Hills vineyard makes a cellar-worthy style of Pinot Noir. It takes some breathing time to get past a rather thin start. But it blossoms into a wine that is both deep and tightly wound, tannic and concentrated, with raspberry and cherry fruit accented with coconut. The finish is long and textural.
