Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Pinot Noir Estate is a huge wine bursting with dark cherries, menthol, licorice and tar. It is an especially large-scaled entry-level Pinot that combines massive richness in its fruit with fabulous acidity and structure. In short, this is magnificent wine, but it is big, and should not be bought by the timid. Readers who can't source the vineyard designates in 2010 will find plenty of pleasure here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
