The definition of a feminine Pinot Noir. Light ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose is beautiful with cherries, slight strawberry, char and earthiness. Medium bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, this is complex and layered. Almost delicate but too persistent. Cherries, slight black cherries, with spice and forest floor. Long finish. This is near maturity but may have a bit more to go. it should drink well for another eight to twelve years. Nice on its own, probably better with food. Pan Roasted duck with wild mushrooms would be perfect.
