Ruby color. Initially tight on the nose, but after a bit of air it opened up very nicely showing mixed red berry liqueur (cherry, raspberry), cardamom, sassafras and damp earth aromas. On the palate it's lush, focused and lively with a gorgeous mouth feel sporting velvety well integrated tannins with cherry and raspberry liqueur, spice flavors with an attractive lingering floral and spicy finish. 2009 Vintage.

Had with beef cheek over smoked root veggies- DO IT!!! So silky and rich- wild cherries and forest floor. Did a John Bender fist pump after dinner, it was that good.

Beautiful feminine aromas of roses and cherries. Soft in the mouth with anise, cinnamon and licorice. Needs a few years to be really pretty

2012, though a warm year, shows earthy nuttiness with black cherry and deep raspberry

Light for a Pinot. A true tweener. But a taste that makes sense as the night lingers.
