Showy and elegant, this Pommard-based Pinot Noir from estate vines stands on the precipice of greatness. The complex nose offers hints of dark cherry, loganberry, smoky blueberry, black olive, graphite, fresh cedar and rose petal. It strikes a breezy balance of blueberry and boysenberry with Bing cherry flavors, combined with juicy acidity and modest tannins that carry into some earthiness in the finish. Rebecca Pittock-Shouldis’ restrained use of oak (10% new French barrels) also opens the cupboard to more versatility at the dining table.
