A beautiful Pinot Noir that shines for its elegance, purity and finesse-driven texture, the 2013 Pinot Noir Kokoro offers a perfumed, intense bouquet of sweet raspberries, crushed flowers, strawberries, and exotic spices on the nose. Coming from a mix of vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County, it has terrific fruit, a light, silky texture and still doesn't skimp on fruit, texture or length. It benefits from a decant and will have a decade of longevity. (JD)  (8/2015)

The 2013 Pinot Noir Kokoro is a barrel selection of fruit from Solomon Hills and Drum Canyon. Like many of these 2013s, the Kokoro comes across as not fully formed. There is plenty of depth in this dark red and bluish fruit, yet the contours remain a bit angular, while the 75% new French oak is evident. (AG)  (8/2015)
