This is a bigger styled RRV Pinot Noir but the fruit seems a bit less ripe. It makes for an interesting wine. Deep ruby in color. The nose shows rhubarb, slight cherries, a hint of cola and plenty of oak/spice. On the palate, this is full bodied. It feels high in alcohol without having any heat. It is smooth and easy drinking with a ton of rhubarb and some cherry flavors. Slight tannins. This probably makes a better drink on the deck than at the dinner table. Probably best drunk over the next couple of years.
