Lovely ripe red cherry, dark plum and raspberry perfume with a note of cinnamon and smoke. There’s good texture here and some layers of complexity running from savory to violet. Fresh and elegant.
Rated 95/100 Decanter Magazine
Dark, fleshy blackberry and black cherry flavors are intense and concentrated, with notes of fresh earth, forest floor and white pepper on a velvety frame. Hints of black tea linger on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 8,200 cases made, 700 cases imported.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Spectator
An attractive, fresh and alluring pinot noir that has plenty of forthright ripe cherry and plum fruit aromas and flavors. Assertive but charming on the palate. Neat wine.
