What does it taste like?
This medium ruby colored pinot noir has the texture and length normally associated exclusively with high-end Sonoma pinots. The aromas grab your attention with raspberries and black cherries made complex with juniper berries, tea, and forest floor. The cool-climate fruit has rich, fresh and vibrant flavors of cherries, berries and spiced plums along with subtle notes of black tea and vanilla. The finish is long and textured, showing layer after layer.
