Hints of purple flowers, hoisin, Peking duck and spicy oak complete the aromas. Lively and driven on the palate, the red fruits show supporting characters of Asian spice and a waft of forest floor. Roast game, red licorice, milk chocolate and spicy oak complete the picture. Great line, lively acidity and a balanced, lingering finish. Drink now.

Richly textured Pinot Noir with a very slight rustic influence that helps make it stand out in the crowd.

Sweet and wild on the palate, with a juicy, almost tart quality to the flavors of redcurrant, raspberry, pomegranate and spices. This energetic, firm-edged wine softened dramatically with aeration and is ultimately quite pliant.
