There's plenty of peppy, primary raspberry and cherry flavors here, but they're layered amindst hints of bramble, earth, mushroom and beets. This is an elegant, intensely Old-World Pinot but with New-World ripeness to boot. Spry and vibrantly acidic, it finishes with a fringe of fine-grained, firm tannins.
