94 Wild Hogge 2011 Pinot Noir (Paso Robles).
Unfortunately only available in Bermuda, this wonderful bottling shows salted brambleberries, crushed violets, asphalt, rosemary and pin-pointed florality on the fresh yet concentrated nose. The palate is zesty and darkly focused, with elderberries, stewed plums, thyme and Earl Grey tea. It’s quite a complex effort. — M.K.
