Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant dark crimson with attractive young purple hues.
Dark cherry aromas with vibrant fruitiness, a spicey, briary tone and a subtle earthy complexity.
The end result is a more fullbodied wine which still displays the enticing varietal fruit of a classic Pinot Noir.
Succulent black cherry, earthy beetroot and cedar with sweet, ripe, fresh strawberry and raspberry red fruits constitute the varietal characters.
