Only 207 cases produced, from one of the handful of greatest Pinot Noir plots in America. The winery says: 

As these vines were planted in 1973, and the average producing life of Pinot Noir vines is 35 years, we are working with a rarified group of vines here. The nose immediately exposes the terroir, that is, the earth and all the environmental conditions in which it was grown. As opposed to younger vines that immediately hit you with their fruit. Do not get me wrong, the cherry and strawberry are definitely there, but equally present are the soil, leather and bacon notes usually only found on a quality aged bottle. A true gem that needs to be experienced at least once in any wine lover's life, and many more times for the pinotfile!

A very special Pinot Noir – with the delicious, very concentrated fruit of its low yielding, very old vines, but also the complexity – even profundity – of maturity. And I wouldn’t be surprised if this was still amazing in a decade or more. (I recently had a quite old Au Bon Climat Bien Nacido that was virtually perfect.)
