Reading some of the other posts, its pretty clear their are different strokes for different folks. Many recent notes say that the fruit is fading, but I think that is one of the reasons we enjoyed it. Clearly CA pinot, but not as big as many can be. The fruit is dark in tone more than red. Somewhat soft and silky, with some black tea, faint earth and bitter dark chocolate tones (Ann thought coffee?). Nothing really stands out and its not extremely complex but it is easy drinking. 14.1% alc. Perhaps a bit overpriced. Paired with grilled salmon.
Dark and rich in color, this wine offers a bouquet of Bing cherry, wild blackberry cobbler, anise, rose petal, and toasty oak aromas that immediately fill your glass. The palate is layered with flavors of wild blackberry, cherry cola, cassis, black truffle, spice and toasty oak.
