First wine of many Pinot Noir the other night, and this on was the top dog. Bright ruby color. On the nose, youthful, medium+ intensity, strawberry, cherry, raspberry, red licorice, lavender, clove, nutmeg, almost creamy, with no earth, and subtle oak. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, medium tannin, bright acidity, harmonious balance, pretty fruit, sexy spices, and a silkiness that really made me stand back and contemplate how great this Pinot was. Now I want more.
