This wine's most dominant characteristics are sun-warmed blackberries and black currants. In addition, aromas of malted milk chocolate, candied violets, and toasted oak fill the nose. The mouth is just what one would expect from the nose. Big, sweet, warm, long and delicious. Those are the only words really needed to describe this wine. Here is a Pinot that can easily stand up to grilled meats and some of the more exotic cuisines.
