Wine Details


Pinot Noir



Wine Description

The translucent garnet color gives way to a reserved nose of cherry, boysenberry and blond spice. The palate is fairly balanced between ripe dark plum and refreshing red raspberry: a full and easy start leads to cherry chutney, grilled steak and bay leaf before finishing on rhubarb pie, light smoke and red cherry pit. The structure is not perceptible at entry, but builds to a nice just-visited overall mouth reminder.
