Intensely ripe black cherry and plum flavors are tinged with earthy tones of granite and fallen leaves in this lush, concentrated Pinot Noir. While forward and almost ruddy with fruit, brisk acidity and fine tannins along with subtle spice and cedar notes lend balance. It's a four-square, balanced wine that finishes long.
