A big, rich, dense, extracted Pinot. It's tremendously rich in red and black cherry, rhubarb, pomegranate, cola and spice flavors, and feels elegant and balanced. This was a ripe vintage with a long hangtime, yet the wine shows no trace of supermaturity. Silky and crisp, it's young now, with a pucker of cherry-skin tannins. Age this one. Best 2009—2015.
