A subtly powerful Pinot Noir, brimming with notes of cherry, tan spice and grilled meat.
Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Color is high tone garnet. The nose is super effusive cherry, hibiscus, grilled meat, tan spice and cracked pepper. The flavors present as cherry and peach pie with a one-minute too brown crust. The structure is quietly lurking, but unobstrusive.
