More about this wine
“Pinot Noir is, for me, the most elusive wine experience – rarified, expensive, mercurial – it often defies expectation, proving an overpriced disappointment. This bottling, however, is a revelation for me. Pitch-perfect pinot, it is pretty, delicate, perfumed, and disarmingly prolonged on the palate. It is a joyful wine, one I need little encouragement to open and pour whenever friends drop by unexpectedly. It’s perfect with all kinds of food, but ultimately in its honesty, simplicity, and quality, it shines through in a manner most life affirming.
Ultimately a wine’s greatest quality lies in its authenticity. It doesn’t matter how defined by my mood my appreciation of a wine is, if it feels confected or overcharged, there is no way I can ever take any lasting pleasure in it. Wines of clarity and delicacy on the other hand, wines like this, that don’t throw themselves at you, but which quietly state the case for themselves in a calm but uncompromising tone, these are the wines that stir me.”
