This Carneros Pinot Noir is deep garnet colored and medium bodied which expresses bright cherry notes and is backed with clove and star anise notes. The palate carries through with fleshy cherry and spices and is deftly balanced with the acidity. The flavors are multi-layered, with concentrated cherry including: Bing, Rainer and Montmorency. This Pinot also has a slight earthy, leathery mouth feel which makes the overall wine very complex with good depth and length. The wine finishes soft with generous vanilla and mocha notes, which present themselves in a very supple and elegant fashion and will pair well with many dishes.
