"Bright dusty ruby color. Aromas of cherry preserve, cranberry orange muffin, wet green leaves, and smoked nuts with a lightly tannic, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a seamless, carefree vanilla-cinnamon bun, iron-rich soil, vanilla-pomegranate taffy, and cola finish with woody tannins and heavy oak flavor. A tannic Pinot Noir with big oaky notes." Silver Medal, Highly Recommended . 2015 vintage -- Tastings.com
The aromas leap up, displaying appealing notes of peppermint candy, strawberry, forest floor, mesquite, cinnamon stick and herb. There's a lovely sense of poise on the palate, followed by a lightly smoky finish. There's plenty of enjoyment to be had. 2017 Vintage Review.
