The 2012 Gisele is ruby red and purple. It has an aroma of vanilla, cherry, cedar and blood orange. The palate is mouth-filling and round with juicy black raspberries. This Pinot has lingering rich fruit and spice on the finish. Enjoy this wine now or age for 5 to 7 years. Pairs well with roasted rosemary chicken and raisins.
"Bright ruby. Appealing, expressive aromas of black raspberry, cherry compote and candied flowers are lifted by a hint of white pepper. Pliant red and dark berry flavors become sweeter with air, picking up spice and cola nuances. Shows very good energy and cut on the spicy finish, which is firmed by silky, harmonious tannins."
