A fine-tuned, fragrant, low (13%) alcohol Pinot Noir, this wine offers fruit flavors of strawberry and raspberry, fresh and juicy, but with a steely spine and enough tannin to feel sturdy and cellarworthy. There is more than a trace of leaf and herb in the finish.
Very pretty, delicate, rose-colored, with cranberries and pomegranate taking the lead among the fruit flavors. With just a hint of malted milk and pine needles in the back of the mouth, this is drinking very nicely.
Plump fruit is sparked with interesting aromas of meat, Mexican chocolate and citrus. The mid-palate shows good weight and a pleasing mix of plums, cherries and chocolate/cinnamon highlights.
