Smoky toasty oak char aromas over rosewood,rose petals, roasted walnut, plum, milk chocolate and deep cherry. Plenty of pinosity on the palate: Medium bodied with fine interplay between delicate tat-lace tannins and smooth fruit. Crisp red fruit and blanketing smoky complexity round out a fine Pinot Noir experience.
