Very attractive smoky raspberry-cherry fruit, with soft, smooth tannins and a touch of cola and spice. This pinot is dangerously drinkable now, and should hold well for another couple of years.

Light ruby to garnet in colour with a medium intense nose.

So delightful, it's easy to be on your 2nd bottle before realizing it

Positives: This wine features smoked cedar, cherry, cola, beets, raspberry, peat moss & violets. Medium minus body and tannins with good acidity & a long length.

Negatives: None

Drink now or over the next 3 years on its own or pair it with Ahi Tuna.

Interesting Point: Reminder to chill it to about 15C

Tasted: 4 February 2014
