Description

"Elegant, featuring concentrated, bright cherry and raspberry flavors that are focused and fresh-tasting. Offers a lively finish of dried savory spice and mineral notes." ~ Wine Spectator

"...about as delicious and quaffable as they come. Strawberries, white pepper, spice and underbrush emerge from this rounded, charming beauty that’s a terrific value..." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"Pale to medium ruby-purple colored...offers a pretty nose of raspberries, strawberries and potpourri with an earthy undercurrent. Medium-bodied, expressive and open for business, it delivers mouthfilling red berry flavors and a good long earthy finish." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Super-ripe dark cherry, tobacco, cedar and dried flowers are pushed forward...The warmer side of the appellation and the richness of the vintage come through in a decidedly lush, giving Pinot to drink young." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
