Randy Fuller

This is a medium-dark Pinot Noir with a nose that screams about the earth. Dark and dirty, the aromas center on forest floor, coffee grounds and black tea. That's right up my alley, unless we're talking Pinot Noir. Then I prefer something more subdued and elegant. The palate, however, gets more along those lines. There's some tea, and some dark berry, and they get along great together. It's not exactly Burgundian, but it's not Californian, either. It strikes a beautiful middle ground.
