Winemaker's Notes

Youthful, purple hue in the glass with a complex nose of cracked pepper, dark summer berries, black cherry and chocolate, combined with visceral, earthy characters, dried wild herbs and excellent but unobtrusive supporting oak. Palate: Initial savoury / black fruit entry carries through a mouth filling, richly structured palate, the texture of soft leather. An underlying mineral acidity supports this richness, adding a certain juiciness and considerable length. Overall a wine of complexity and finesse.

"The delicious flavor of fresh-crushed raspberries form the center of this wine, intensified and focused by the structure. It's built on smoky tannins and peppery alcohol, neither element obtrusive. Delicate scents of roses and kelp add complexity to the substantial fruit. The wine feels complete and youthful, suited to several years of age, rich enough for roast sweetbreads."

I bought several bottles with the intention of only having one now and hoarding the others for a few years. It's going to be hard as the wine was everything I want Pinot to be now - smooth with lots of different flavors (as called out in the description). We visited the winery back in 2004 and drinking this brought back wonderful memories.
