($48) Dark red. Dark cherry, dark chocolate, smoke and underbrush on the nose. Broad and rich, with a glyceral texture and flavors of cherry, spices and earth.A supple, sweet, rather full-bodied pinot that struck me as a bit old-fashioned.

A ripe, jammy style, with black cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit that has a spicy edge, ending with a dash of nutmeg.
Nice nose of asian spice, rhubarb and cherries coupled with some subtle hints of cola and cinnamon. On the palate it was very smooth with bright acidity and silky tannins. Medium bodies with the alcohol well under control by the fruit. Needs a bit more time to come together but pretty good right now.
