This was an interesting Pinot Noir from northern California. Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has cherries, sour cherries, smoke, anise and slight menthol. Very nice. On the palate, this has a big, but very nice texture. Viscous with good acidity. On the palate, this drinks well with sour cherries, anise, sandalwood and just the faint whiff of char. Very tasty. A long finish. Those who like bigger, fresh (clean) Pinot Noir should love this wine. Drink over the next ten years. It would go well with Salmon but also roasted chicken.
