Au Bon Climat 2013 Pinot Noir Knox Alexander


"The condensed pomegranate aroma on the nose of this bottling from Jim Clendenen is beautifully spiced with star anise, tobacco leaf, dried ginger and cinnamon. The palate shows chai and Indian spice—accents to the cranberry fruit that rides a fine line between ripe and tart. Although light in body, the tannic structure is firm enough to cellar for decades. Drink now–2033." Wine Enthusiast 96 Points

"The 2013 Pinot Noir Knox Alexander is bright, focused and beautifully delineated. A wine of precision and focus, the 2013 exudes energy from start to finish. The Knox Alexander emerges from Bien Nacido's north-facing, hillside Block 11. A touch of whole clusters adds aromatic nuance, while the oak, mostly new, is deftly balanced. The 2013 is striking. It's as simple as that." Antonio Galloni 95 Points
