This 2010 Pinot Noir is deep garnet in color with warm rosy hues. The complex bouquet offers layers of dark berries and cherry, cinnamon, sweet leather, fresh herbs and soft tobacco. The palate is plush and round on entry. Ample red and black fruit, including rhubarb, bramble fruit and cranberry, is balanced with notes of fresh mushroom, white pepper and savory spice. We love this vintage's delicate and lacy tannin structure- and its bright acidity gives delicious lift to the lingering finish.
"Medium deep ruby-purple in color, the 2010 Pinot Noir opens with intense notes of red cherries, black raspberries, pepper and toast followed by hints of cedar, meat and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it has juicy fruit and vibrant acidity framed by a medium level of fine tannins. It finishes refreshing and fruity with good persistence."
