This young cuvée is an almost equal Pinot Noir-Chardonnay blend. Some raw barrel flavors seem to suggest that somewhere along the line wood was involved, but that's just a guess. Bottom line is that the fruit is there, but to show its best it should have additional bottle age. Drink from 2020 through 2025.
