Cinematographer Michael Seresin of Midnight Express and Bugsy Malone fame maintains an organic estate featuring a horse-drawn wagon that sprays compost “tea” to ward off vine pests. There is often depth exhibited by wines grown in such an old-school manner. You’ll find that here, not just in the chewy complexity of the primary, berry-like fruit but also the floral overtones and meaty essence of bacon that emerge in the second act, hallmarks of many fine pinots. It’s crisp and lightly tannic, a good candidate for three to five more years of cellaring.
