This is a big, fruit styled Pinot Noir. It is full of California sunshine and ripeness. Deep ruby in color. The nose has bright cherries, baking spices and slight cedar notes. On the palate, this is full bodied. Cherries and sour cherries. Very clean. Nice energy. Right now, this probably works better on its own than with food, but with time, this should mellow a bit and work well with swordfish or even past dishes. depending how you enjoy your Pinots, drink this over the next ten to twelve years.
