Bright red fruits on the nose—cherry, raspberry and red currant—along with baking spices and earth. On the palate, ripe and round, with zesty acidity and a touch of tannic balance. The red fruits continue, along with the baking spices, particularly cinnamon. There is earthiness and hints of herbs as well. This is a modern-styled Pinot Noir, accessible and easy drinking, but with more than enough complexity for contemplation.
