The wine was meticulously blended from a select set of barrels representing many of the winery's top vineyard sources, and only 150 cases were made. Once the cork is pulled and the wine poured, the aromas are deep, dark and show a sauvage character. On the palate, it is explosive, expansive and endlessly layered and complex, and so persistent on the palate there's no point in talking about a 'finish' per se. Waves of fruit continue to saturate the palate as long as you can resist swallowing or spitting. This is a blockbuster pinot, laden with glorious fruit and fine structure.
