Ruby with red fruit aromas and spicy herb floral notes, aged for 11 months in 35% new French oak. On the palate tart raspberry and cherry flavors with earthy tones. Tannins are firm with balanced acidity. Pleasant finish ending with a touch of minerality. Tasting Sample.

Such a tasty Pinot. Loads of raspberry, cherry, clove, and vanilla. Soft on the nose, explosive flavors on the pallet. Great job @Anthony Biagi , loving Amici wines more and more!

Restrained fruit evident in background. Medium bodied and well balanced offering hints of subtle earthy component. Drinking very well.

I've always been a big fan of Amici Cellars, and this is just another great example of the high quality their wines impose. Classic RRV elegance, structure and balance. Strawberry and wildflowers on the nose, and a soft mouthfeel delivering notes of ripe raspberries amd the faint taste of clove and white pepper, laced in lush acidity and a smooth finish. This is a great vintage of Pinot Noir, great effort.

Vivid Ruby with red berry aromas and noticeable integrated spice. The palate put forth big flavors of cherry, raspberry, and sweet vanilla spice adding some cinnamon notes. Lively acidity, well balanced, gentle tannins lingering with bits of minerality.
