Winemaker's Tasting Notes: The aromas have the beginnings of great complexity. Deep scents of rose petal, violet flower, beautiful soft red fruit, and a slight decadent scent of forest floor decay give way to complete fullness across the palate with our typical mid-palate density. A long satisfying finish gives one the powerful impression of many years of positive development.
"Crystalline raspberry and hibiscus aromas are dusted in light earth and herb tones on the nose of this delicate bottling. The palate is candied with subdued strawberry flavors, as hints of mace and cardamom play with hints of herb."- Wine Enthusiast.
"This is more bone than flesh, with a wiry tannic structure around a core of savory, damson plum and blood orange flavors, all backed by a tangy sanguine note. The taut, piercing finish is very persistent. Should be interesting to cellar; only for fans of the style, though. Drink now through 2029."- Wine Spectator.
Varietal: Pinot Noir.
