My friend pulled this bottle out for us this past Sunday at a gathering. It was delightful. Beautiful clear, delicate red color in the glass with a nose of new world cherry, strawberry and (grass?). On the first taste, very smooth intro to kirsch, cherry torte and cola. Crispy acidity and tight tannins make for a nice mouthfeel. The acidity rolls deep and the length is long. This wine drinks beautifully right now but has the stuffing to go deep into the cellar for 10 plus years. 92 points all day long. Carneros produces some of my favorite Pinots, and this one sits high on the perch. I believe this is a $40 bottle making it a splurge but 4 stars from me. Salut….
