In my opinion, the strongest vintage yet for Latchkey. The breadth and heft that I've found in past vintages are here, joined by an elevated elegance. Super-pretty raspberry, fresh cherry, rose, toffee, and a hint of white chocolate mocha. Not yet rated but by golly, it better get some love points because it's an outstanding Oregon Pinot noir. - Marcus
