A huge Pinot Noir with dark candied fruits of dark cherry, blueberry and plums. Enhanced by leather and spice notes, subtle mint and floral characteristics. An extremely rich Pinot Noir with excellent balance and a beautiful finish. This wine should enjoy many years of age worthiness due to the prominent youthful tannins.
