This is a lean style and still a baby with its sappy red strawberry and raspberry notes, with cinnamon, tar, violets, warm stones and furniture polish. The palate is tightly wound, ending on a long, tart cranberry and raspberry finish. Drink now if you like your Pinot al dente, otherwise cellar through 2025.
