“Brilliant red. Fresh red berries, cinnamon and a hint of woodsmoke on the fragrant nose. Pliant raspberry and cherry cola flavors are braced by tangy acidity and a touch of blood orange. Sappy, penetrating and precise; a jolt of peppery spices enlivens the long, gently tannic finish. This sexy Pinot delivers absolutely superb value.”
