Flavours of raspberry, smoke and spice on the nose.

Taste is quite complex, offering different notes throughout the tasting. Strawberry and raspberry fruits, cinnamon spice, forest soil, coffee, leather and tobacco.

Light weight on the palate, Velvety tannins are well integrated into the finish. Well done!

Tasted Feb 2012. One of the darker Pinot Noirs I've has with musky almost smoky nose overpowering the red berry notes. Tasted of sea salted sour cherries with a touch of spiciness and gripping astringency. Kept flipping between whether or not I like it.
