Juicy wild berries and tart red fruits lift from the glass with a smattering of fragrant spice and a whiff of brambly undergrowth. A sip yields a deeper core of fruit, more of strawberry, black cherry and simca plum. Clean waves of fine tannin glide effortlessly over the palate, ebbing from the palate, leaving it speckled with notes of cocoa, nutmeg and cardamom seed. A cool-climate pinot noir of quiet charm and clarity.
