Earthy aromas recalling new leather, truffle, blue flowers and eucalyptus are just some of the scents you'll find on this savory red. Elegantly structured, the tightly knit yet weightless palate delivers ripe Marasca cherry, crushed mint and star anise before finishing on notes of black tea and white pepper. It's loaded with finesse and personality.
This bright ruby colored Pinot Noir from Carneros opens with a cherry-cola and red raspberry bouquet with hints of iron filings. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. I also found it to be balanced and savory. The flavor profile is an earth and stewed black plum blend with notes of charred oak and blackberry. I also detected hints of anise, rosemary, and black pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely.
