A vibrant and attractive, red-cherry pinot that offers plenty of intense fruit fragrance and sweet spice. The palate has a silky, sleek and plush, primary-fruit core and delivers attractive, easygoing style.
The silky-smooth 2017 Pinot Noir features scents of damp loam, black cherries, cola and dried spices. It's medium to full-bodied on the palate, round and concentrated without any rough edges, and it tapers to a lingering finish that shows just a light dusting of fine-grained tannins. It's a solid effort from a producer with a long history in the region.
