(2005 Vintage) Bright ruby red color. Soaring aromatics of crunchy red berries with darker black raspberry and truffle notes. Sweet and pliant entry with classic inner-mouth perfume. Light cassis, smoked meat and strong fruit extract on a seductive mid-palate. Finishes fresh, supple and elegant. Offers aging potential of 8 to 10 years. Serve at 60 degrees to allow the wine's full complexity to shine.
International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Deep red. Sexy raspberry and strawberry preserve aromas are fresh and incisive. Pure, cool red berry flavors stain the palate but are zesty and almost weightless. Spiciness builds with air and carries into the finish. A suave, graceful style of pinot, with admirable finishing cut and superb persistence.
