($50) Good saturated ruby-red color. Aromas of almost liqueur-like black cherry and black raspberry. Fatter and more mouthfilling than the Cerise, with a more exotic aspect. Very ripe and nicely balanced, though. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a peppery nuance. Larger-scaled than the Cerise but less subtle and complex. From a cool vineyard and heavy clay soil, producing what Guthrie describes as a bigger style of pinot.Author: Stephen Tanzer
