(2009 Vintage) Ruby red in color. Intense and vibrant aromas of zesty wild berries, spices, mocha and hints of vanilla. Delicious cherry, cola, raspberry and baking spices with luscious, silky smooth tannins that linger seductively on the finish.
Bright in colour, black cherry with garnet to the rim. Small toast, earthy. Cherry, plum, rasberry compote. Some vanilla. Small pepper component. Dry. Good balance. Good back end. 6-7 year ageability. Would pair with stew, caserole, duck. Buffalo, ostriche, game meats. Add into reductions for veal/pork. Carpaccio. Medium/hard cheese. 36.95
This is NOT the Pinot. It was delicious.
