Pyramid Valley ‘Earth Smoke’ Pinot Noir 2018 – From the same biodynamic vineyard as the ‘Field of Fire’ Chardonnay. Hand destemmed and partially crushed by foot. Wild yeasts, cuvaison for a lunar cycle (28 days), settled for another and then transferred to French barrels by gravity. Élevage for 16 months, then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Only 97 six-packs made.
A pale but vibrant red with lifted aromatics. Black cherries, truffles, tobacco leaf, old leather. There is weight on the palate but a lightness as well. Moves into the classic forest floor notes. Bright acidity. Seamless, supple and long. A decade ahead. 97. $150.
