2003 Estate Grown Pinot Noir
Palate broad with full flavor saturation of fruit and spice
Deep garnet color with crystalline translucency, but not transparency. Rich. Dark raspberry, cherry with wafting spices, including cinnamon, pepper and forest floor. A light feral undertone hinting of sensuality. Palate broad with full flavor saturation across all quadrants. Luscious, textural, gentle acidity. Leaning to red fruits, rather than dark, including cranberry, cherry, and raspberry. The spicy aromas deliver on the tongue, with earthy forest floor. Complex with a long finish that penetrates and lingers. Rich good fruit of dark cherry, giving way to minerality. Long long finish!
