($68) Deep red. Strong, floral bouquet suggests cherry, plum, rose and violet. Supple dark berry flavors offer good depth and chewy texture, picking up baking spices and cracked pepper with air. A smooth, round and supple pinot, with ripe fruit and good chewy persistence.

Shares the Garys' profile of understated flavors built around forest floor, mushroom, dried berry, sage and anise flavors. Drinking well now.

15% ABV. Opened and poured through the Vinturi into a decanter, followed over three and one half hours. Initial nose of plum and racy, laser lined cherry with some ripe cranberry as well. On the palate this wine shows flavors of rich black cherry with some tart blueberry lining. Two hours in and some candied apple flavors develop. Slight earth spices and vanilla show throughout and into the finish. Some toast and vanilla on the finish. There is a bit of bitterness on the back of the throat. Enjoyable on its own without food. Drink now with an extra decant or hold 1-2 years.
