Aromas of cherry juice, balsam and earthy flora draw you in. Graceful, silky and cohesive, offering flavors of red cherry, raspberry, and spice. This wine has gentle power that packs more punch than the light color and demure composure would suggest. The gossamer tannins provide enough support and the finish has persistence without weight. Inviting old vine Pinot Noir patina. Score: 93. Reviewed May 30, 2022
