Purple in color.  This is a bold young Pinot Noir.  Dark cherry fruit on the nose, some spice.  On the palate, the dark cherry fruit carries thru along with some coffee (presumably oak).  This is lush and deep.  It will be interesting to see where it goes and how it matures.  Right now, I wonder if the fruit outlasts the oak. At the same time, it is delicious right now.
