This gorgeous Pinot Noir begins with beautiful dark fruit aromas of black cherry and red plum and hints of vanilla, allspice and sandalwood with a hint of rose petal. Flavors of black cherry and black currant, vanilla, dark chocolate and rosemary add to the complexity.

90 points, Burghound.com (4th Quarter 2009, Issue #36): “…Rich…very solid depth and fine length …approachable young with 30 minutes or so of air.”
