This wine has a jammy cherry aroma infused with a slight toast. The flavor is full of bright cherries and is very soft in texture. It is an up-front, forward-style of Pinot Noir that is deliciously drinkable with only the slightest amount of oak seasoning to accent its luscious, deeply cherry-fruited characteristics.
"Very dense up front, with delectable aromas of plum cake, black cherry and vanilla. The palate is not enormous, but it's big enough to satisfy any lover of modern-style Pinot Noir. If there's a fault here, it's a buttery note to the finish."
