Misleading You expect fruit forward but it's a beautiful oak with a hint of smoke

At 14.5% alc you get a great bite cab drinkers would love. Still a lot of jam and fruit on the front with nice long finish for a Pinot noir. Big but with a nice softness

V14. Wow. Dusty, smokey nose. Rich, creamy, jammy black cherry fruit. Zippy, pepper finish . Not a typical Pinot style. Nice with any rich gravies on roasted meat.

Cherry pie is a good descriptor. Cherry predominates throughout, and the high alcohol, 15.5%, gives the whole concoction a heavy weight in the mouth. Not a good stand alone sipping Pinot, but I can see it pairing well with savory foods.
