Vivid ruby. Sexy aromas of pungent cherry, spice cake and fresh rose, with an almost liqueur-like suggestion of raspberry compote. Suave, silky and densely packed, with intense minerality giving the primary but complex red fruit and floral flavors terrific definition and cut. Impressively balanced pinot with the spine to age slowly and gracefully. The endless finish features harmonious tannins that are broad and very fine.
