This is not an overly fruity pinot noir. Even so, it's truly enjoyable pinot with earthiness yet has dark cherry fruit that is nicely integrated. A tasty pinot that's probably an 89 rather than a 90. I'd given it a 90 if the fruit was just a touch more pronounced. All in all - a high quality wine.
Very unusual pinot noir -- long on earthy, short on fruitiness. Stay with pinot noirs from various Julia vineyard producers
