Ici/La-Bas Pinot Noir ‘Les Reveles’ Elke Vineyard 2009

Ripe Rainier and Bing cherry with red plum and complex notes of graphite, cedar, rhubarb, forest floor plus a hint of clove. Light mouth feel and a silky texture with a nice natural fruit acidity on the back-end bringing balance. Combines fruit and savory into that “something else” — a wonderful strata of flavors, multi-dimensional without confusion. Improbably full in flavor and weightless in body: An incredible lightness of being. A very good wine. (Reviewed 7/4/13)
