This is a powerful Pinot Noir with good structure and depth. It's deep garnet colour and aromas of violets, red fruits and earthiness speak of a warm growing season. On the palate the wine exhibits an assortment of fruit: Bing cherry, plum and subtle watermelon, with toasty oak quietly complimenting the mix. Fine, slightly dusty tannins and a hint of natural acidity compliment the finish. This wine may be enjoyed upon release but will ultimately reward those patient enough to cellar it.
