    April 16, 2017 - Easter Weekend Wines; 4/15/2017-4/16/2017: Deep ruby color. Great aromas of tart pomegranate and red cherries mixed in with sweet plums, cola and lavender. Rich but not dense this is juicy and delicious with moderate acidity and some bold grip to the tannins. Plums and tart cherries, rich but not sweet or cloying at all, and the fruit is backed up by cola, roasted herbs, coffee, pipe tobacco and cedar box. Wow, this is a full-on Pinot but it shows a lot of freshness despite its bold presence. Delicious over a few hours in the decanter, but I'll hold my other bottle for two-to-four years.
