Bing cherry, syrup, roses and licorice on the nose, with a bit of a stemmy/licorice flavour. This one was done in a more modern style of vinification, giving off fuller fruit and less of the earthy, barnyard notes for which pinot noir is renowned. Well balanced, with medium weight, a dry, peppery mouthfeel and pleasant tannins. Long, maraschino cherry finish. (www.2ndferment.blogspot.com)
