About

94

"Medium-deep ruby color; dark berry and cherry aromas with mineral and forest floor notes; dense, deep and complex dark cherry flavors with forest floor notes; moderate tannin and toasty oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, dense and intense‚Äďand yet balanced Pinot with a lot under the hood! Perfect match for a hearty grilled steak."

Product Description:

"Aromas of mineral, forest floor, sandalwood, and berry barely prepare you for the intensity of flavors by mouth. A completely silky, sexy texture envelopes concentrated blackberry, earth, and mineral spice flavors. A little tightly wound, this beauty opens into an incredibly dense, rich mouthful that stimulates the salivary glands in an almost Pavlovian manner. The finish is quite persistent and we think this wine will be exceptionally long-lived and will likely not reach its potential for at least eight to ten years. This is not a shy pinot noir for the faint of heart!" - Importer
