Delicious wine with lots of forest floor, pine needles, exotic wood(teak and mahogany) and cherry on the nose and a smooth rich palate with nice cherry and cranberry fruit with some cinnamon and acidity. A solid medium length finish. A great QPR.
I don't have much experience (Yet) with pinot from Anderson Valley, but if this entry level pinot is any indication I am in for a real treat. Yeah great, just what I need another CA pinot AVA to explore. The wine is a very pretty translucent light cherry with a good nose of floral scents, spice, cherry/strawberry, and somethig I couldn't quite but my finger on. The best way I can describe it is like smelling teak or mahogany, sandlewood maybe? The palate is full of bright, crisp tangy cherry and strawberry fruit, cinnamon, and perfect acidity that shines a laser beam on the fruit. The finish is medium length with very nice spicey cherry . Certainly a different style than what I am used to from the Central Coast but a very refreshing change of pace. This is certainly a winery to keep an eye on and I need to get my hands on some of the Paraboll.
