Bright red. Vibrant aromas of raspberry, licorice, rose and sandalwood. Juicy and intense, with very good sweetness and fleshiness to the red berry and spicecake flavors. The silky tannins arrive late. I like the high-pitched, spicy fruit character of the sappy finish. (ST)
Shows tart cranberry crispness in addition to richer cherry and raspberry fruit, but it’s a fairly aloof wine now, with competing parts. Even though this isn’t a single-vineyard Pinot, it needs time in the cellar, to let everything mellow.
A full measure of juicy, fresh cherry fruit leaps out in the ripe and outgoing nose of this inviting youngster, yet for all of its initial sweetness and come-hither promise, the wine is unexpectedly backward and tightens up in the mouth. That is not to say that it is in any way short on the fruity essentials, and it exhibits fine depth and focus. It just wants for a little expansion and should find just that if given a few years of age. *One Star*
This complex red is focused on a mix of black cherry, red licorice and spicy fruit flavors. Full-bodied, delicate and framed by firm, supple tannins. (JL)
