A wine with wonderful color and structure. The ultra-intense aromas include crushed blackberries, peppercorns, black currants. The refreshing acidity found in the wine cuts through the rich aromas and creates a fresh texture.
The light pink rim hints at a classic Burgundian-style Pinot Noir. The nose offers fresh-picked bing cherries and ripe strawberry notes with an undertone of turned soil and mushrooms. This wine is fresh and leads into racy acidity. It is well-balanced and complex.
Aromas of chocolate, blackberry, blueberry and black currant are richly layered with fresh strawberry and mint notes. The tannic and high acid structure of the wine completes the experience. A truly complex wine that offers a unique profile of red, black and blue fruit aromas.
In the words of Josh Raynolds from Vinous, it is "A wild, complex bouquet (that) evokes ripe dark berries, succulent herbs and potpourri, plus a hint of smoked meat in the background... blueberry and cassis flavors are firmed by a spine of juicy acidity. Deep yet lively as well, displaying excellent finishing clarity and supple tannins."
From Josh Raynolds at Vinous: "High-pitched raspberry, cherry and floral pastille aromas are complemented by suave Asian spice and smoky mineral flourishes. Fine-grained tannins sneak in slowly on a very long, seamless finish."
Beautifully colored, with aromas of macerated cherries, dried blackberries, currant and roasted blueberries. The texture with its preserved acidity, firm tannins and soft fruit profile is the product of two expertly blended terroirs. This is a masculine wine with a long finish with true-aging capacity.
A bouquet of red fruit: freshly-harvested cherries, macerated strawberries, and a hint of red currants. Intensely bright cherry flavors with secondary notes of steeped winter spices. The combination of red fruit, high acid, and mild tannins make this a great example of a bright, well-balanced Pinot Noir.
