The 2008 has all kinds of life and vibrancy if not as much finesse as some might like. It's mid-weight, tart and...

An elegant Pinot with an unfortunately high-toned nose but otherwise good length and complexity. Sweet cherries,...

Light to medium garnet with some ruby in colour with a medium minus intensity on the nose.

Positives: This is not a big Pinot, but it's also not from California. Very smooth & very easy to drink a bottle or two in one sitting. Low tannins, medium alcohol & medium acidity makes this wine really easy to drink on its own or pair it with duck. The notes show floral notes of violets, roses, cloves & pine. The earth notes are well integrated with cherry & raspberry. Light to medium body & medium+ length. Simply delicious.

Negatives: None
