Delicate on approach, the lovely translucent strawberry red color seems demure, but one sip reveals flavors more intense than it lets on. With a lovely nose of ripe red fruits, savor flavors of red cherry, cranberry and black raspberries (sweeter than blackberries, everyone should try this berry). At this point the acidity kicks in followed by subtle baking spice, violets, hints of wet leaves (what is a Pinot Noir without a little earthiness?), cola and just enough BBQ smoke to make this an elegant and layered wine perfect for food.
