Winemaker's Notes:

"Good deep red. Pungent aromas of dark cherry, licorice, rose petal and menthol. At once broad and sappy, with firm flavors of dark cherry, minerals, mint and spices, all firmed by an edge of acidity. A smooth, vibrant Pinot Noir that finishes with broad tannins and good spine."
