Telltale cinnamon and vanilla headiness hints at new some oak on the nose. The palate offers red cherry flavors that are juicy enough to counterbalance the oak. For now, fine tannins coat the mouth but give structure for fruit and oak to express their well-matched tones. A modern take on Alsace Pinot but with ample freshness.
