Wow, what a pleasant surprise of a Pinot. On the bigger end of the spectrum, yet it offers quite a bit of earthy, mushroomy complexity. Love it.

Deep ruby color with damp earth, mixed berry, spice and kiss of cola aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with a nice balance of acidity and supple mouthfeel. It exhibits concentrated morello cherry, cola, and spice flavors. Medium-long finish.

Strawberry, light in color and tight. Opened too soon for best result.

Very nice, berry, chocolate and spice flavors. Heavier than most Pinot noirs but livelier as well
