Unbelievable aromas of rich blackberry smoke. Strong tannins that hold the flavor profile but do not overwhelm the palate. Very fruit forward and significant ultra-ripe dark cherry, black raspberry, deep blue plum and loganberry. Next hints of lavender and violet unfurl along with accents of toasty oak and crushed clove. This weighty Pinot with plush, fine-grained tannins creating a velvety finish. Full mouth feel. Can withstand strong tastes. Meats, cheeses and robust sauces. BBQ would be well matched with this gorgeous wine.
