B rimming over with sumptuous red fruit, fragrant orange peel, plum, leather and warm potpourri spices-this lightly-colored Pinot brings more to the table than it lets on. As per normal, perceived sweetness, acid and alcohol shift over the life of the bottle, and early on it comes across as a touch sweet; yet once on its feet, it becomes clear the supple body is a sturdy canvas for vivid flavor. The window of optimal enjoyment is long.
