Pale and slightly bricked in hue, this delicately concentrated Pinot Noir offers a rather ghostly expression of the grape. Its floral perfume suggests dried violets and lavender and its brandied cherry and berry notes are faded and demure. Dusty tannins are soft but pleasantly bitter on the finish. It's showing signs of maturity already so enjoy now through 2021.
