Dark ruby in color, this exceptionally perfumed Pinot displays an aromatic array of wood smoke, toast, floral notes, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to an elegantly styled, spicy, focused, impeccably balanced wine with excellent volume, intensity of flavor, and a lengthy, seamless finish.
"Sleek and silky, with cherry and wet earth flavors, finishing on a savory note. This has firm tannins that stay behind the fruit as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2017. 4,800 cases made."
"Ruby-red. Sexy aromas of strawberry and raspberry preserves and potpourri, with slow-building spiciness and a hint of vanillin oak. Sappy and nicely focused on the palate, offering lively red and dark berry flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Finishes with good grip and punch, repeating the red fruit note. For a rich wine this shows good energy.
