This stunning red-head smells and tastes of the Pommard clone right off the bat. Her aroma is rich in strawberries and raspberries. There is a creaminess about her that suggests a ripe, complex dark cherry and earthy notes. On the palate she is round and focued and hints at cream soda with a hidden acidity. Great structure – gaining depth and weight on the lingering finish.
"A sweet, soft, harmonious Pinot Noir. Feels so gentle in the mouth, it hardly has any weight, yet it’s a very serious wine. The flavors are enormous, suggesting ripe wild cherries, raspberry liqueur and baking spices, finished with perfectly applied, smoky oak, and brightened with fine acidity. A wine of great charm, it should continue to develop in the bottle for six years."
