Deep ruby , with a slightly lighter rim.  The nose has a plethora of red and black fruits including raspberry, cranberry, blackberry, and black cherry.  The fruit notes are balanced nicely by the complex earth and spice driven components like licorice, rhubarb, forest floor, and floral notes.  This wine has a elegant mouth-feel and a long complex finish that lingers pleasantly for 45+ seconds.  This wine shows tremendous depth and provides great pleasure now but will age for at least 8-10 years.  Whether you enjoy Burgundy or California Pinot this is one that is sure to please both palates!

Medium ruby red to garnet with a pink rim.  Complex nose of black fruits, tangy cherry, and some violet.  Nice balance on this medium weight wine with more flavors of cherry & rhubarb on the palate, and the finish goes on for well over a minute!  Highly recommended.
