    This is noticeably reduced and I would strongly recommend decanting it if you're going to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is good freshness and verve to the middle weight flavors that possess a suave and rounded mouth feel before culminating in a cool, dusty and firm finish that suggest that this will need, as well as reward, 6 to 8 years of cellaring.

    The 2013 Pinot Noir Gioia Vineyard has a distinctly floral/savory/citrus profile, with pretty aromatics that balance some of the intensity of the fruit. Dark cherries, plums, mint, dried herbs and crushed flowers wrap around the powerful finish.
