When we explore a glass of this wine, our first impression is a rich, mouthwatering perfume of violets and blueberries. With further aeration, multiple layers reveal aromas of candied black cherry, cocoa and cinnamon. The palate is generous with masses of dark fruit. Its tannins are smooth, sleek and richly integrated -- imparting a silky plushness to the mouth. Superbly balanced acidity gives this Pinot an elevated feeling as though it’s a poised dancer -- a true indication of longevity.
