This marks another stellar vintage of The Traveler, an estate-grown block planted to a suitcase clone that seems to have found a happy place in Fort Ross-Seaview. Dark cherry and strawberry jump out of the glass, around a core of lush, spicy and decadent chocolate swirls. Buoyant in acidity, this is a gorgeous Pinot with lilting traces of orange and cranberry on the finish.
