Tasting Notes: This single-vineyard Pinot Noir strives to express terroir first and foremost and tends to succeed every year with a consistent profile of blended bright fruits and earth notes on the nose followed by a nicely layered, albeit very dry palate of raspberry, spice, mushroom and mineral flavours. Balance is a bit sharp and austere, though more time in the bottle should foster further cohesion. Drink mid-2013-2016.
