Intense. Fruit. Currants. Smokey maybe. Good, not great. A bit ripe. May mellow over time. Will wait to open second bottle.

This review is for a '13. Haven't reviewed in a while but this wine made me want to get back into it. Popped and poured about an hour later. Dark but transparent maroon. Spicy, big nose. Still some alcohol blowing off. Dark chocolate, cedar, hints of black pepper, raspberry, ripe red fruit. Medium bodied, but bold and spicy like its nose, but very much a Pinot. I love it. Will pick up a case

very nice aromas. toasted oak, candied cherry, a little bit of animal and rock.
flavors of cherry pie, twizzlers, candied strawberries, some burnt marshmellowy carmelized sugars. nice.
