Cute and classy label. Darker color than a lotta pinot noir out there. Aroma is nice. Ripe berries from cool places (say coastlines and mountain tops). That classic cherry cola of Pinot. Flavors are nice and bright. Tincture of medicinal plants (echinacea and\or elderberry), iron in red meat served rare, pie cherry, or even choke cherry. Nice long finish with some of that woods after a forest fire or peat bogs in the sun. It’s a very nice, dry and balanced Pinot with elegance.

Fruity and sweet without being sickly, firm body without being obstructive, good grip and length and just really tasty, easy drinking wine.

A pleasant Pinot Noir with good tannin length and notes of cherry and dry cedar. All spice and subtle oak on the nose.
