Deep garnet in color with an aromatic medley of black cherry, marionberry, ripe plum and a hint of anise. Dark fruit on the palate with flavors of wild berries, caramelized oak and cacao nibs complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, cedar and a hint of lavender and forest floor. Rich and unrestrained, this wine’s abundant fruit is beautifully balanced by firm acidity and layers of red and black fruit.

This is an extremely ripe and bold style of Pinot Noir, showing kirsch, cola, root beer, and anise on the nose. The powerful extraction extends to the sip as well, where black cherry, pie crust, and vanilla bean flavors sit atop a thick mouthfeel, with a touch of prune on the finish.
