94 points Vinous: :Powerful black raspberry, cherry liqueur and potpourri scents are complemented by suggestions of incense and exotic spices. Fleshy and concentrated but lively as well, offering palate-staining red and blue fruit, floral pastille and spicecake flavors sharpened by a smoky mineral flourish. Finishes smooth, floral and extremely long, with resonating spiciness, harmonious tannins and a lingering cherry note.
A dark and serious Pinot with plenty of joyful exuberance, its blackberry and black cherry fruit heart is decorated by a mushroom and rosemary-like savoriness. Yum!
