“Light ruby red color in the glass. A very friendly wine with cozy aromas of red cherry, cranberry and sandalwood. Light to mid weight in style, with a charming core of red fruits with cherry as the centerpiece. Additional accents include baking spices and brioche. Elegantly styled and forward drinking with harmonious tannins and a robust finish that seems to build in generosity over time in the glass. This lovely wine reveals the demure, angelic side of Pinot Noir.”

“Pale ruby color; smooth, savory and fresh with elegant style and velvety texture; silky, balanced and long.”

“Beguiling aromas of roses and tea and a delicate earthy flavor. Its richness is beautifully faded…like an exquisite old tapestry. Pinots such as this evoke a certain similarity with Burgundies. If you love classic pinot noir, this is for you.”
