The Thorn Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir from LaRue and winemaker Katy Wilson is absolutely stunning in this vintage. As this gorgeous Pinot Noir slowly begins to unwind it releases striking aromatics of beautiful pure red fruits, cranberry and exotic spices, along with wild flowers and an earthy character all taking shape. On the palate this shows incredible focus and balance, with a wonderful elegant mouthfeel and a core of delicious fruit that is framed by lovely acidity leading up to the mouthwatering finish. Overall, this is a simply fabulous Pinot Noir that should evolve gracefully for over a decade, however it will likely require a few more years in bottle before it begins to hit its stride.
