WILLAKENZIE ESTATE Pinot Noir 'Pierre Leon' 2014

An absolutely gorgeous bottling, the 2014 WillaKenzie Estate 'Pierre Leon' impresses with its earthy terroir and dark fruit flavors. Initially slightly more reticent on the nose than some of the other new releases from this estate, this Pinot Noir has intoxicating aromatics of Shitake mushroom, forest floor, black cherry, wild blackberry and smoky accents. There are rich flavors of black cherry, black truffle, black plum, anise and spicebox accents. This has a lingering finish that coats the mid-palate. The mouthfeel and viscosity is excellent, as is its dazzling minerality. Be sure to give this beautiful wine some air contact if approaching now. (Best 2016-2026) - November, 2016 (OB)
