The Thomas Bachelder style shines through all his Pinots, from Niagara to Oregon to Burgundy. They are never overdone, always with a sense of graceful power and finesse. This gorgeous wine shows fruits of anise, raspberry, ripe cherry and cassis with a pretty floral and incense notes. The tannins are evident but smooth, and the ripe fruits are bolstered by crunchy minerality and light savoury spice through a long finish. Buy, hold and enjoy years down the road.
