Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) "Medium red. Cherry and raspberry aromas complicated by musky espresso and smoky oak. Suave, fine-grained, broad and dry, with soil-inflected flavors of red fruits and baking spices. Very nicely balanced, natural pinot, finishing solid and long, with dusty tannins and meaty, leathery suggestions."-IWC
