($45) Bright medium red. High-pitched aromas of red berries, rose petal, earth and spicy oak. Juicy, intense and perfumed, with red fruit, floral, mineral and spice flavors framed by perfectly integrated acids. Very shapely, structured pinot noir, finishing with firm, smooth tannins and excellent grip.

Spice, plum and wild berry are featured in the aroma, yet on the palate it's a leaner, trimmer version that some will find more appealing than others.
