...ripe dark berry pinot fruit, plenty of spice & a hint of sandalwood... gorgeous complexity to the firm, intense & relatively powerful flavors that display striking complexity on the solidly structured... delivers outstanding length...

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Pure, complex, perfumed aromas of violet, gunflint, minerals, spices and earth. Sweet but light on its feet, lifted by a note of menthol. Quite youthfully unevolved, but finishes with noteworthy persistence. Tannins are firm and dusty.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
