This is really a fabulous Pinot Noir that is absolutely Grand Cru. It's balanced, but what's hard to describe is how the wine can be silky and airy, yet dense and complex. The fruit is amazingly ripe, a detonation of cherries, cola, raspberries, pomegranates and coffee, with new oaky layers of caramel, toast and vanilla, but it all comes together in a seamless, elegant, complex experience that's a joy to savor. Terrific now. Should hit its peak in 2007–2009, and hold for a decade.
