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.
