Deep ruby in color, clear and bright.  The nose has black cherries and slight menthol.  Medium to full bodied.  Very smooth drinking.  The black cherries come thru to the palate.  Very tasty.  Nice finish.  This is on the lusher style of Pinots.  It should be consumed in the next five to ten years.  A nice match for roasted duck.
