92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013
Full dark red. Sweet if slightly reduced aromas of brambly black raspberry, cola, mocha and leather. Broad, plush and rich, with dark berry flavors complicated by smoky soil tones, cocoa powder, spices, herbs and espresso. A bit youthfully aggressive and quite backward today, finishing with slightly dry-edged, dusty tannins. But this impressively deep, long pinot showed building sweetness as it opened in the glass and appears to have the stuffing for a graceful evolution in bottle.
