Review

Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of dark berry preserves, cola, clove, rose and anise. Round, fleshy cherry-vanilla and floral pastille flavors are enlivened by baking spices and smoky minerals. An open-knit, invitingly sweet pinot displaying minimal tannins, this finishes with very good lift and lingering licorice and spice notes.
