Tea, raspberry and tree bark aromas are interesting and inviting, while the strawberry and cherry flavors are a little gritty and reduced but true to the blueprint in terms of taste. On the finish, chocolate, vanilla and other oak-based flavors do their thing. Not a perfect New World Pinot but it's on the right path.
