2013 Rastaban Pinot Noir Magnum 1.5L

2013 Rastaban Pinot Noir Magnum 1.5L

Crazy complexity. In the mouth, everything is confirmed. This is such a beautiful, fat, smoky, unctuous crazy good Pinot Noir. What else can I say?

Rastaban is the name of a star and that star is the eye of a constellation called Draco. This is one of the first and more reserve pinot noir labels Jimi Brooks produced. Jimi’s passion and interests of mythology and astrology often were shown through the creation of his first wines.
