IMG_20160903_220814Dark garnet. Big dark-fruit nose reeking of perfect Bien Nacido Pinot characteristics–woodsy, tobacco and rootbeer–burnt earth and a nice vegetal streak. In the mouth, concentrated and packed with spicy black cherry compote.  Beautiful acidity and velvet tannins.  If you have 30$ to spend on Pinot Noir, how on EARTH are you going to top this stuff?!?!
