Delicate, clear ruby/garnet, very pure. High-toned aromatically with pretty lifted notes of cherry, strawberry, rhubarb, roses and hard candy. Lovely fruit and balance, showing restraint and delicacy.

One of the lightest pinots in my recents, light and great minerals on palate.

Very pale red with garnet. Loads of fresh spice: anise, coriander. Underripe raspberry, red currant, and bramble. High acid is balanced by a density of ripe cherry. Finish is subtle and savory.

Been wanting to try this for a while. Needed a good decant but pretty good.
