"Bright red. Ripe cherry and blackberry scents, along with hints of blood orange, licorice and musky flowers. Gently sweet and broad on entry, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Shows very good clarity and length on the gently tannic finish, which leaves hints of candied flowers and cherry pit behind."
"COLOR: Perfect Pinot-esque color with ruby red interior followed by light lilac edges. This is what color and transparency Pinot noir should be. The wine pours beautifully into the glass and nothing will embarrass you in front of the âBurgundy is Betterâ crowd plus it will teach a thing or two to those who are drinking adulterated Pinot noir from Baja, Oregon. No blending of other varieties or any use of enzymes here to extract deeper and darker colors to fool you into thinking the wine is bigger than it might be. This is real wine and it will make you and everyone else really happy.
AROMATICS: When opened four days ago, or rather FIVE days ago, the aromatics were shy and just showing a nice clean, cherry and plum aroma with a hint of summer dustiness. Over the next few days the wine evolved and a range of aromas showed through with fruit and earth combining on the third day: muddled cherries, alfalfa, roasted plums and morel mushrooms. Now, on the evening of the FIFTH DAY all aromas are all there: starting with violets, freshly sliced black plums, peach skin, orange pith and almond butter. Give the glass a big swirl and then waitâ¦ wait for another minuteâ¦ THEN go back to the glass and inhale: wild strawberries! Rarely do I ever get strawberries in my Pinots but it is here in this one! Amazing aromatics. You could spend an inordinate amount of time just breathing in this wine as it is always changing, albeit slowly, it is changing and evolving, because it is real wine.
FLAVORS: Once imbibed an explosion of blueberries with freshly squeezed lemon are obvious. A smooth, mouth enveloping wash shows more French Green Plum Tart followed by a raison cinnamon bagel toasted to the brown perfection where the raisons are starting to caramelize. Think perfectly aged Barolo without the aggressiveness. How did this happen? Step away for a while then come back to experience smashed raspberries with diced kumquat. How weirdly satisfying is that combination? Have a bit more patience and experience blackberries, wild plums, sous bois (forest floor) and then caramelized plums, dusty raspberries, salmon berries, black currants soaked in Marc tossed over ripe Epoisses cheese and spread over a crusty baguette. This is living!" - Winery
