This sets the stage for a pinot with a great bouquet and a layered palate of black cherry and plum, gently, but insistently, filling every corner of the mouth, and lingering on the aftertaste.

The swirling fragrance is captivating, vibrant and alluring boasting sappy aromas of spiced cherry and charcuterie hints too; very complex and dynamic. The palate has impressive composure and detail: it holds elegantly with bright acid spark and the fine tannins run linear and deep. Shows class and polish.

Medium-bodied with a medium level of fine-grained tannins, it has a generous amount of mid-palate fruit juxtaposed by refreshing acid and a long finish with some mineral notes. Drink it now to 2019+. 91+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A suave, silky midweight that features zesty raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of white pepper. Energetic and nicely balanced on the long, sweet and seamless finish. Distinctly elegant in character and balanced to age over the mid-term.
