Pinot Noir, "Connor" 2014

DuMOL

Brilliant coastal Pinot expression. Bing cherry, strawberry top, black pepper, pine needle and freshly-turned soil. Sweet and supple red fruit entry. Lithe, delicate and transparent palate. Darkens to blueberry. Succulent, zesty and fresh with wonderful clarity of flavor. Velvety mouthfeel then vibrant red apple skin rhubarb finish. Lingering and energetic. A beautifully balanced wine with great purity of coastal fruit and nuanced soil/leaf notes built on a long sleek frame.

Reviews

  • "95 points. Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Connor opens with alluring potpourri, garrigue and underbrush notes over a core of pomegranate and red currants. Elegantly fruited and medium-bodied, the perfumed red fruit flavors define the palate, supported by harmonious, silky tannins and refreshing acid, finishing softly spoken yet with great resonance." (Wine Advocate)
  • "92 points. This intense, very well-crafted wine hits all of the varietal marks smartly. It is rich & fully ripe, but it is very deep & continuous fruit rather than ripeness that is its dominant theme. While already involving & offering plenty to please in the near term, it is beautifully composed & eminently ageworthy stuff that will only gain in complexity & beauty for at least another five or six years." (Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine)
