At once cool and smoky, this pinot noir has iron in its soul...mineral freshness that drives the long and intense finish.
Beautifully perfumed, this is a well-integrated wine, gritty in texture and moderate in weight. Blue and red fruit form around a tension of focused acidity and tannic balance, finishing with a spiciness of cardamom, cola and orange peel.
The nose opens with touches of tar and woodsmoke over Cran-Apple and pomegranate with an earthy undercurrent. It’s light-bodied, fresh, bright and lifted, with understated fruit and a juicy finish.
Silky in texture, with medium-grained tannins supporting the fresh red fruit and spice flavors. Creamy accents emerge midpalate, leading to a finish that lingers with sandalwood and hot stone hints.
