characters, with Pinot gaminess and spice. Toasty oak is evident, providing additional complexity. A medium bodied wine with supple texture and a fine tannin finish. Dark red fruit characters of cherry and blueberry dominate, with savory stalkiness and toasty oak evident in the background. The wine has excellent structure and length and will reward
"Medium red. Deep cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by toasty oak and white pepper. A firm, juicy midweight with good depth to its bitter cherry and dark berry flavors and subtle vanillin sweetness. Finishes youthfully firm, with good spicy persistence. Give this at least a couple years to unwind. "
