Aromas of spice and essence of pure red pinot fruit lead to more elegant and refined medium weight flavors that possess a really lovely mouth feel as the supporting tannins are not only finer but more completely integrated as well on the balanced and solidly persistent finale. Once again this isn’t super complex but this should develop better depth if cellared for a few years first. 90/2020+
