Strawberry, red cherry, wood smoke, plenty of spice, vanilla and a sort of mescal aromatic. Fine boned, fresh and even through the mouth, flush with red fruit and even has a slight creaminess to it. Length and yum factor both on the high side. Well I never.
Very reserved, restrained and delicately handled, this finely crafted, measured and balanced pinot reveals a pretty, floral bouquet of sweet red cherries, berries and plums backed by suggestions of underbrush and cedary oak. It's long, lean and elegant, with a supple, faintly stalky presence of red cherries and berries supported by a gentle but genuine spine of dusty tannin.
