Violin Pinot Noir Clos de Oiseaux 2015 -- Pinotguy 93 Points
$48 / bottle -- only 70 cases made!
This is of a similar style as the Willamette Valley bottling, but with a lot more "there" there. Darker red fruits dominate on the palate, commingled with brighter crushed red fruit, and it shows off a broad, layered mid-palate that flows into an intricate, lengthy finish that is highlighted by mineral and spice nuances. The balance is perfect, and the wine shows class and some youthful focus. Decant now, or hold for six months. -- RW
