The nose offers surprisingly deep aromas of ripe cherries and raspberries, with a leathery background. Round red fruits and roses make an extraordinarily feminine and pretty impression on the palate. This is a lighter Pinot that would pair well with pork or dark meat poultry. Highly Recommended. 91 points. DBH
