This is the best vintage of this wine and that is saying something.  The top Pinot Noir uses the best barrels of all of his single vineyard wines to craft this wine.  Normally, a very fruit forward wine, this is more ephemeral in nature.  The term "Burgundian" gets thrown around a lot but is not far from the mark here.  Deep ruby in color.  Clear and bright.  The nose is great with raspberries, black cherries, cherries, spice and slight clean earthiness.  Medium to full bodied.  Light tannins.  On the palate, this unwinds slowly in the glass.  Deep and complex.  Cherry and black cherry fruit with underlying earthiness.  Long finish.  This will improve and should drink well for the next twelve to fifteen years.  To my knowledge, this is  only bottled as a 375ml wine which is a shame this vintage or it would be a twenty plus year wine.  Drinks great on its own, this will be great with roast duck.
