Other Reviews....
Fragrant riffs on Damson plums and mossy underbrush, never straying into the red fruit and orange peel accents that can mark many wines from this maritime region. The tannins are gently evergreen, filigreed, long and lithe, directing the waft of flavors while compressing the finish nicely to confer just enough tension. A delicate medium-bodied pinot noir of considerable class and detail. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
