There’s inherent complexity to this single-block bottling. Aromas of red cherries and darker cherries, as well as plums, nori and crushed violet flowers. The palate has such composure with refined and concise, blueberry and cherry flavors, wrapped in layers of fresh and polished tannin. Magnificently articulate pinot that is also just utterly delicious and whose style is driven very much by site and soil, both cleverly interpreted.
