Translucent ruby red in color, this wine has perfumed aromatics upon opening. Scents of forest floor and aged tea leaf are followed by cinnamon and rose petal. Medium in weight, this supremely elegant and textured old vine pinot shows the characteristics of the Demuth site we have grown to love: a bright red fruit profile, spice, minerality and vivid acidity. Though expressive and delicious now with decanting or air, this will reward 5 years of cellaring to uncoil all of its beauty.
"The 2013 Pinot Noir Demuth Vineyard is very pretty. Bright saline notes support a core of finely sculpted fruit in a Pinot long on class and detail. Small red berries, rose petals, mint and spices blossom as this striking, perfumed Pinot shows off its personality and class. Next to some of the other Pinots in the range, the Demuth is a bit more ethereal and fleeting, reflecting the nature of this high altitude site. What comes through most is the wine's intense inner perfume and pulsating salinity." – Vinous, 92pts.
