Ripe! Toasty! Black Cherry! We're wholeheartedly OBSESSING over how well this bottle is drinking now (and it will only get better!). A slightly ripe and ever-so-mildly toasty nose features notes of black cherry, cassis, underbrush... There is impressive volume to the concentrated, opulent, suave and beautifully textured flavors that possess firm shaping tannins and excellent depth and length on the slightly oaky finish. Unwavering texture that makes you want to come back for so much more!
Pinot Noir does whatever it wants. It’s one of the more difficult grapes to grow due to its thin skins and susceptibility to disease, but that’s never stopped winemakers across the world. If coming from a cooler climate, like its home land of Burgundy, the acid is racing and balanced, typically, with oak aging. On the contrary, in warmer climates, bright red fruit is the name of the game. All are solid options and we’re continually impressed by new expressions of this world-famous red grape.
