Winemaker's Notes:

This brilliant, garnet colored Pinot Noir displays rich fruit aromas of plum, cherry, blackberry, and cassis. In a background of oak spice, tobacco, leather, and cedar, the soft entry precedes complex flavors of plum, cherry, oak, spice, and vanilla meshing harmoniously mid-palate. This wine offers a well-balanced tannin structure and acidity that carries throughout the long, smooth, velvety finish.
