The lovely label does not deceive—this is a quality product from package to palate. It's expressively aromatic, as Pinot should be, with rose petals, orange peel, raspberries and cherries. That clean, pure fruit gains weight as it carries into a lingering finish, streaked with white chocolate and supported with perfect acidity.
