This bottling is the winery's top cuvée, a blend of the best lots of the other single vineyard Pinots. Tight and steely, its tart, cranberry fruit plays hard against a background of mineral, herb and light coffee. Clearly ageworthy, it has the complexity and structure to merit the score. Cellar Selection. —P.G.
