Very full-bodied and rich, offering a wealth of ripe fruit and even some dry, gritty tannins, this will stand some time in the cellar. It’s explosive in red and black cherry pie, currant, raspberry and cola flavors, with a rich edge of melted milk chocolate, and the vanilla spice and caramel of new oak. Just a tremendous palate experience.
Like most Garys’ Pinots, this is an enormous wine in both fruit and alcohol. It detonates on the palate with mega-flavors of ripe cherries, raspberries and vanilla cola. Yet it maintains a pure, elegant Pinot Noir silkiness. However, there’s a funky, sweaty smell that’s a turn-off.
