Not your average Pinot Noir; it's inky, with a nose of sugar beet, black-fruit liqueur and a touch of alfalfa. Further nosing reveals mineral and black currants, characteristics more akin to a Mediterranean red than textbook Pinot. In the mouth, it's a hulk, with berry and kirsch, pepper and ultimately some heat. Imported by The Calkins Group.
