Just a hint of heat on the nose, with red and dark fruit, along with a prominent dusty garrigue. The herbal notes, along with the dusty stone smell leads into a palate full of velvety tannins, with lots of herbal, earthy flavors peeking through the blackberry, plum, and dark cherry fruit. This is not necessarily the style of Pinot that really grabs your attention, as there is nothing that is really "in your face" about it, but it is very well made, all the same and would pair well with a wide array of foods.
Light golden in color. Nose of lemon, honeysuckle, honey and almond. It really swirls across the tongue with honeydew, pineapple, peach, meyer lemon and honeyed stone fruits. It has a nice bright texture and excellent acidity. Really enjoyable, but only hinting at the level of sweetness found in many Spatlese reislings.
