Description

"This wine is dark and dramatic, both visually and on the palate. While perhaps not the monster of 2003 that had people cowering in fear this wine is definitely a take no prisoners sort of Pinot Noir. There is a load, an ocean if you will, of dark, plum-centered fruit in the front of this wine that is followed by coffee, chocolate and kirsch qualities that lead into a fairly dramatic and intense set of tannins. It sounds like a big guy and it certainly is but everything is in proportion so it is neither a fruit bomb nor an overly tannic monster that will never been anything than a monolith. This has definition, balance and a heart of Pinot Noir. The great thing about it other than its sheer goodness is the fact we made 1,270 cases of it." -Winery
