Winemaker's Comments:
A very weighty Pinot Noir with prominent spice, cola and candied fruit characteristics of blueberry, dark cherry and strawberry. Added complexity comes from cassis and light floral notes of rose petals. For such a dense Pinot Noir it displays remarkable balance and an elegant finish.
