A solid backbone of red fruit is present. However, those bright red fruits are beginning to slip to the background, with the darker fruits coming forward. Cola, vanilla, and a very smooth tannin structure present. Drink now.
Ruby red core. Cherries, raspberries, vanilla, camphor, Asian spices, and a whiff of flowers on the nose. The long, broad, and youthful palate has hints of glycerine and cherry and berry flavors that are a touch sappy but not overdone. Picks up spices and oak before finishing on a long mineral note that continues the fruit theme. This is attractive and is excellent with food.
Maroon appearance. great nose of strawberries, cherries, and (call me crazy) sweet smokey BBQ sauce. Medium body, but light for a Pinot. Nice fruit on the platte with tart cherries and a bit of plum. Agree with other comments that this is very much an expression of the varietal. I served it slightly chilled (to ~60) which helped focus the flavors very well.
