2013 La Colline Pinot Noir
Arroyo Grande, CA
As I look through my notes on this wine and it sits before me in the glass, my thoughts are all over the place. Here goes an unedited compilation: Young, dark, ripe cherry, fruit beautifully rendered, dense fruit, baby fat, v.g. balance and firm tannins, carousel of scents and flavors, a paradox, at times heady, will take time to equalize, borderline decadence – undeniable youthful beauty, a bit naughty, always desirable – empty glass tells a good story.
