...Powerfully scented aromas of candied red fruits, cola, incense and Asian spices, with a bright mineral overtone. Stains the palate with sappy black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that are lifted and braced by a zesty mineral quality. Closes sweet, spicy and very long, with silky tannins that fade into the wine's dense fruit. Pretty seductive.
This has a lovely transparency to its currant and plum fruit, shaded with tar and mineral notes, riding easily over buffed tannins into the long, expressive finish.
A very fresh, ripe and classic pinot nose of red and blue pinot fruit that is liberally sprinkled with spice and briar notes...delicious and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess sophisticated tannins. The finish is beautifully balanced, dusty and mouth coating and offers that rare quality of being enjoyable now yet being capable of rewarding aging as well.
