A Pinot Noir this delicate and feminine in balance is a real treat. The mouth is very flavorful despite its modest extract.
The 2010 is a deep red color. The nose conjures up things both sweet and savory. Cassis, candied apples, vanilla bean, red licorice ropes, and cured ham come immediately to mind.
Named after a block that arguably produces the finest Chardonnay on the estate, it respects the style of all our previous Chardonnays and dials it up a notch in flavor and structure.
The mouth is round, sweet feeling (though bone-dry), and just plain delicious. Like the name suggests, it will bring out an animal-like appetite in you.
Sweet and viscous, it possesses a mouthwatering acidity that enables it to fill the entire palate.
Flavors of berry liqueur, smoky sweet oak, toasted walnuts, and grenadine linger on the palate crafting quite an expressive wine.
