Review

Saturated, bright ruby-red. Superripe but lively aromas of crushed blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, violet and spices. Sweet, plush and creamy, with superripe flavors of black fruits and violet. Finishes with very ripe, chocolatey tannins. The exotic side of pinot noir. This vineyard was pulled up after the 2004 harvest in favor of condos.
