This is an excellent example why so many go crazy for Pinot Noir. The wine exudes a nourishing warmth that transports you to a cozy country kitchen, with bouquets of drying flowers and currants hanging from the rafters, szechuan beef sizzling in the stir fry, earthy sumac in the spice bowl and smoke from the dying embers of a campfire wafting in through the windows. It's silky and open enough to drink now, but should continue to age well through 2025.
