Garnet in color with dark cherries and just ripened blackberries on the nose, complexed by hints of forest floor and red licorice. The sensuous palate offers the perfect balance of grip and acidity, displaying tart cherries, baked blackberries and a touch of black licorice with astounding persistence to close.
Ripe, generous and welcoming, with supple tannins surrounding caramel-accented cherry and tangerine peel flavors, lingering easily. Drink now through 2017. 2,469 cases made.
At first herbal, tart and steely, this Pinot does appear to have been assembled from rather different lots in terms of ripeness. It has Dr. Pepper-like flavors, sharp acidity and some alcoholic heat, along with raisin and brown sugar flavors on the back of the palate.
