The scent of blackberry and spicy bramble anticipates layers of lush
black fruit and raspberry interwoven with nutmeg, espresso, woodsy cedar and toasty oak. Substantial on the palate with polished, well-integrated tannins, the flavor lingers long after the glass is empty.
"Dark in color, ripe and complex, this shows wilted rose, ripe plum and blueberry flavors that are firm and deep, while maintaining its delicacy. Ends with firm, tealike tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 15,165 cases made."
"Rich and tart, this is a delightful Pinot Noir for drinking now. Feels upscale in the mouth, with flavors of spicy raspberry, red currant, cola and sandalwood. Shows the elegance that almost always accompanies a Robert Mondavi wine."
