Plump and boldly structured, this full-bodied Pinot Noir offers rich, concentrated blackberry and black cherry flavors. Aged in Hungarian oak, it's lavishly spicy, embellished with notes of vanilla and caramel, but maintains elegant composure and brisk, cutting acidity. The finish is marked by firm, velvet-textured tannins.
