(2/2023) "Dark and tense when first poured, this wine from a cold site on the far reaches of the SLO Coast starts out tense and savory, all smoke and olives. With air, it develops into a lively, gripping, tension-filled pinot. While the flavors are dark and plummy, the wine remains delicate and poised, its lacy texture brimming with the kinetic energy of the Pacific. Lively now, it's clearly built to age--and a steal, for cellaring."
