Here the oak isn't shy though it's not as intrusive as it is in some of the wines as it doesn't dominate the dark pinot fruit that is cut with plenty of earth and spice nuances plus and a hint of the sauvage. There is a seductive mouth feel to the round and velvety full-bodied flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract while delivering superb depth and persistence on the very firmly structured finale. Once again, patience is strongly advised. Don't Miss!
