Tasting notes
This elegant garnet-hued Pinot has a young finesse rarely seen in such youth. The nose hints at Bing cherry and raspberry. On the palate you will taste these bright red fruits, and its lushness and crisp acidity hints at rose petals. This, along with a bit of tanned leather and young tobacco, make for a lively Pinot! Strong and lingering finish.
