Yeah, it's that kind of a wine.
Pinot Noir is a silly obsession for many, an obsession which seems almost reasonable with this wine in your hand. Is it the best Pinot I've ever had? No. But it is quite possibly the most exciting, enticing Pinot I've had the better part of this year. And at $30, it's no cheapie, but considering the joy ride, that's more than a fair fare.
