Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The wine has a medium dark ruby color. The aromas are a mixture of intense exotic spices and dried berries. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with strong spices accenting dried cherry flavors. Balanced oak vanillin contributes a slightly sweet impression in the mid-palate and finish. The tannins are slightly dry but will smooth out with 2-3 years of additional cellaring. The final result is an intensely flavored wine that manages to still remain elegant and balanced.
Serve this wine with game such as rabbit, quail, and pheasant to name a few excellent pairings.
"Medium-deep ruby color; deep, complex, black cherry, plum aromas with meaty, smoky notes; big, rich, deep black cherry flavors with plum, pepper and smoked meat notes; great texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Big, deep and yet silky and exquisitely balanced, this Pinot has so much complexity and pleasure at the same time. Delicious."
"This is a Pinot you have to use your judgment on concerning ageability, because it’s too young now. It’s very jammy-fruity in raspberries, cherries, bacon and cola, with sweet, smoky oak not yet integrated. But it’s a beautifully structured, balanced wine of great integrity, and should develop in the bottle. Best after 2011."
"Bright red. Highly aromatic bouquet displays scents of red and dark berry preserves, cherry skin, anise and dried rose. Deeply concentrated raspberry and cherry flavors are firmed by fine-grained tannins and pick up a suave, spicy character in the glass. The anise note resonates on the long, spicy, focused finish. I'd hold this one for a few more years."
