If you were to have the world's greatest Marsannay this would be it. It is a pale ruby colored very light translucent almost Transparent. It has light to light medium body but a tremendous amount of complexity of subtle nuances and spices in the flavors total red fruit cranberry restrained cherry notes but certainly ultra-restrained by California standards. This is a very interesting wine. Complexities and subtle spices become more evident as a wine opens up with a bit of hair. Very good stuff!

Perfect with seared duck breast at friends'. Tasted with Presqu'ile 2013 Bien Nacido. More fruit, but better balanced through the night.
