This bright ruby colored Pinot Noir from Carneros opens with a cherry-cola and red raspberry bouquet with hints of iron filings. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. I also found it to be balanced and savory. The flavor profile is an earth and stewed black plum blend with notes of charred oak and blackberry. I also detected hints of anise, rosemary, and black pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely.
