    Bottle (1)


    "An expressive, extremely ripe black fruit nose nuanced by hints of torrefaction, earth and coffee are followed by soft, delicious, round and textured flavors underpinned with completely buffered tannins and loads of ripe extract." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #17, Jan. 2005)

    "An expressive and extremely ripe black fruit and plum suffused nose is nuanced by hints of torrefaction, earth and coffee are followed by supple, delicious, round and textured full-bodied flavors that are underpinned by firm tannins and loads of ripe extract. This is a powerful yet detailed wine that does seem to carry its alcohol well with only a trace of finishing warmth. In sum, this is a delicious and unbelievably long wine that bathes the palate in ripe pinot extract though note that it is also quite youthful and will require ample cellar time to arrive at its apogee." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct. 2013)


    Estimate: $280 - $375.
