This is a really magnificent bottle of wine that no Pinot Noir enthusiast should be without. It is made by the supremely talented Ted Lemon who is probably one of North America's finest winemaker of Pinot Noir. Not only did he earn an enology degree in French from the University of Burgundy, he apprenticed at storied Burgundy estates like Domaine Dujac, and started his own winery, Littorai, on the Sonoma Coast, but he was the first American ever hired to run an estate in Burgundy, at Domaine Guy Roulot in Meursault. So he knows a little about Pinot Noir. This 2012 has a lovely floral, perfumy, black cherry, raspberry nose. The palate is beautifully balanced with concentrated dark red fruit flavors of great depth and a pretty spice box character. It has a lush velvety texture with perfect acidity and well toned tannins. It is so complex and complete and correct it is almost hard to describe. It just needs to be experienced.
