Aromas of sweet berry fruit with spiced notes. The palate shows developed ripe dark red fruit, cherry with oak, cinnamon spice and mineral notes. Soft tannins with rustic edge, elegantly balanced, vivid acidity, lingering finish ending with earthy mineral notes. Wow!

Complex and structured with no harsh or challenging notes. Lots of floral and spice up front bit smooth to the end

A great pinot. The quality associated with a great producer. Obviously still young but drinking well even now. Full body and good finish.

Too big and ripe for me. Lacks the elegance that I crave in Pinot.
