High-toned aromas of pinot and strawberry fruit that are still largely primary though there are now hints of secondary development that complement the medium weight flavors where the tannins are still buried. While this is not especially dense, particularly on the mid palate, it is stunningly elegant with exceptionally good length and in particular, simply beautiful balance. This can be approached now with pleasure though it should continue to improve for another 4 to 6 years. 93/2010+
