"Bright intensity" describes the color, aroma and flavor of the 2000 Mills Pinot Noir.
Sweet red fruit aromas of strawberry and cherry are enhanced with notes of cedary
spice, black pepper and oak. This big-bodied wine displays a wonderful balance of
fruit, smooth tannin, and unctuous texture. While delightful now, this wine will
continue to develop and should age beautifully for at least ten years.
