"Coming from a suitcase clone rumored to be from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and planted in 2001, it was completely destemmed and spent 15 months in 83% new French oak, which is the most new oak of any of the Pinot Noirs. Sensational notes of passion fruits, blood orange, black raspberries, spice, and crazy floral notes give way to medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir that’s just about as good as it gets. With perfect tannins, a seamless, weightless texture, no hard edges, and a blockbuster finish, this finesse-driven, elegant Pinot Noir needs to be tasted to be believed. Hats off to Bibiana Gonzalez Rave."
