      The attractively fresh and lightly spicy aromas of mostly red and dark pinot fruit where hints of plum and violet add depth. The delicious, vibrant and solidly well-detailed medium weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the rich, sappy and moderately firm finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose resurfaces.
