Robed in deep color, this Pinot Noir
opens with the intense aromas of dark
fruits – black cherries and plums –
that echo on the palate. Wellintegrated
acids bring a measure of
vibrancy to the lush, fleshy texture,
and fine-grained tannins lend
structure into the smooth, lingering
"Trim and spicy, offering a band of black cherry, mineral, cedar and black licorice flavors. Elegant and medium- to full-bodied, this is clean and cleansing on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 15,000 cases made."
"The 2009 Pinot Noir emerges from the glass with layers of perfumed red fruit and sweet spices. This fleshy, generous Pinot is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit retains its juicy exuberance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.
