Dark red color. Opens up nicely with some cherry, cranberry, black pepper, and cloves. With further aeration, notes of lemon, orange, and papaya subtly come out into the open. Hints of cherry, black pepper, and cloves sail into the palate and are equally matched by some strawberry flavors. The texture of the wine carries vibrant tannins and bright acidity. This hedonistic Pinot Noir ends nicely with a refreshing, lingering finish. Drink now through 2016.
