This complex Pinot Noir is a big and full of body. Not over the top, but skirting the line beautifully; this wine flirts with power, depth, richness and elegance simultaneously. This harmonious cuvée opens with expansive warm aromas of spices and black fruits with a hint of floral notes. The mouth mirrors the aromas with full flavors of black cherries, blackberries and red currents wrapped within fine and sweet tannins.
"Ripe and rich yet quite elegant; silky and lush with lovely ripe cherry and graceful flavors that hold hints of gentle spices; showing great depth and finesse, complex and of a piece; long, seductive and exquisite."
"Soft florals with notes of tea overlay this wine's vibrant cherry fruit, which gets more exuberant with air. There's a brisk tension to the flavors that provides plenty of drive. The herbal bottom note suggests a match with thyme-roasted chicken."
