Winemaker's Notes:

An excitingly complex and well balanced Pinot Noir with gorgeous mouthwatering aromas of blackberry and a touch of leather. This wine slips into your mouth with juicy and lip-smacking flavors that mirror the aromas. It is balanced by vivacious acidity and a soft and velvety mouthfeel which wraps around your tongue delivering the impression of sweetness from the soft ripe tannins.
