This wine was made from modest yields. It still has a dark plum/garnet color, a relatively sweet nose of sandalwood, roasted herbs, sweet and sour cherries and some barrique smells in the background. Medium bodied, a bit tart and angular without the plushness and measured richness that we look for on the mid-palate. Still this wine is very Pinot - lacy and elegant. This is a finesse styled Pinot with a bit of tightness to it that we doubt will ever soften completely due to the vintage characteristics.
