As it is poured, this wine fills the air with enticing red fruit aromas. The wine itself has a classic Pinot Noir translucent ruby hue yet it possesses a deep glistening crimson core. The depth of its hue is mirrored by the depth of fruit on both the nose and palate. On the nose, aromas of rhubarb, stewed strawberries, and cherries, both morello and maraschino, are contrasted by tones of scorched earth and gravel. Ripe red plum and dark red cherries coat the front and mid palate as a blood orange acidity caresses the sides of the tongue. At the back of the palate waits a silky, yet ever so slightly powdery tannin that prolongs the luscious flavour long after your first sip. An underlying power lies in reserve in this wine and as such it will only continue to benefit from cellaring.
