Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) Intense ruby red in color, it is an intriguing aromatic mix of sunbaked blackberry, bright cranberry, ripe plum, black licorice and hints of candy apple. Complex red and black fruits unfold on the palate; blackberries, raspberries and warm cherry pie filling, with a wonderful dark chocolate characteristic. Cedary oak and soft vanilla undertones on the mid-palate further enhance the wine. The overall impression is rich and silky with a firm acidity, refined tannins and explosive layers of ripe fruit.

    This is for me the starting point of decent Pinot's. Big, yet gentle on the palate. It's subtle cultured / curd flavor is beautiful & yet unique. A hint of melon, strawberry is evident, but depends much of course on the person(s) enjoying. Worth every penny.
