is elegant, yet powerful, with beautiful floral and berry flavors reminiscent of cranberry, raspberry, and cherry. This is followed with deep, underlying layers of minerality. The purity and balance of this wine portrays hints of spice and cedar that coats the tongue with great acidity in the mid-palate. Integrated oak and deep, rich earth highlights the beautiful fresh fruits of the cool growing region that finishes with smooth, rounded tannins.

“An attractive, mid-weight weight. Sweet red cherry, plum, smoke, herbs and tobacco. Floral and savory notes take center stage as this pliant, expressive Pinot shows off its personality. Classy and polished to the core, the 2012 should drink well for at least a handful of years.” Antonio Galloni
