This is a great expression of RRV pinot. Much different than previously reviewed RRV styles. You can tell the sites are a bit different, perhaps higher in elevation as the fruit in this is a little more tight and intense. This was given to me as a gift and we opened it up with a nice filet of king salmon. Awesome pairing, but took an hour or so to really open up even in a decanter. Gorgeous color and taste. Give it another few years if you can wait. It will be worth it!
