Top Notes For
Frank Kuo

Color of dilute plum skin with brown hazy note at the rim, partly transparent. Nose of nice ripe cranberries and plum, oaky, malty, peaty, and spice note, all modest and round. Taste of round acidity, with waves of sweetness like caramel attacking the palates, peppery, unusually jammy considering it's a Pinot noir, black tea flavor, ripe berries, and oaky. Aftertaste of pepper, balsamic vinegar, and a bit of zest. It is definitely a bottle full of terroir characteristics.
