Winemaker's Notes

This Pinot Noir has a seductively rich, super dark ruby-violet color. Aromas leap out of the glass with black cherry, black cherry leather and cedar, along with a ripping portion of cinnamon spice. The wine finishes with a hint of violet flower patch. Use of new oak was delicate, so the aromas are authentic Pinot Noir.

The flavor is a big juicy mouthful, with firm tannin structure framed by velvet texture. The fruit is all about black cherry all the way to a very long finish. Spice of "far away lands" rounds out the complexity of this exciting, cool-season vintage Pinot Noir.

This wine thoroughly surprised me with its burst of pleasant flavor. While it is a pinot noir and I expected more of a subtle taste, it had an amazing amount of fruity flavor more reminiscent of a cabernet or finer aged merlot. I personally am more partial to more flavorful wines such as a good South African pinotage or cab and this was undoubtedly the best and smoothest pinot noir I have ever had. While it is not cheap, I decided to order one or two because it was so good. HTH
