Tasting notes
On the palate the flavor is one of the silkiest in memory, enhanced by a creamy texture. The fruit sweetness is black cherry and ripe plum. Fathoms of chocolate spice and morel earthiness frame the fruit. All this is supported by firm, ripe tannins which linger along with the sweetness for a very long finish. The structure and surprising sweetness should help one to predict significant return on cellaring this wine!

Rating
2010: 90 Points - Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator: "Light in color and texture, this Pinot displays pretty watermelon and cherry flavors that ride smoothly over velvety tannins, hinting at mint as this all lingers enticingly. Drink now through 2016. "


Wine maker notes
This wine is alive with aromas of darkest cherry, cloves and cinnamon. It is no different on the palate—almost explosive in its expression of sweet juicy marionberry, raspberry cordial, and black cherry cobbler framed in subtle oak tannins. Definitely a big wine, but a big wine with grace and elegance enough to lift you up and put a smile on your face.
