As in previous vintages, this wine is initially reductive, but this time it blows off fairly quickly once exposed to air in the glass or decanter. It opens into a subtle, focused Pinot, flowing from strawberry, cherry, damp earth, dried herb and slightly charred wood aromas on the nose to a silky palate of plush fruit supported by lovely, textured tannins.
Deep red appearance with aromas of red cherries, raspberries and violets. Rich flavor with subtle hints of smoky oak and bright berry flavors on the palate.
This Pinot Noir is concentrated and powerful and deserves a little bit of bottle aging before enjoying with rich flavorsome food.
