The nose jumps right out of the glass with classic Pinot Noir aromas of strawberry, shiitake mushrooms, bay laurel and soy. The savory characters of the aroma go straight to the pallet with an amazing combination of that savory and the sweet red fruit characters. There is just enough very high-quality French oak to weave these two amazing characters together. The beautiful silky texture of the wine makes a mouthfeel that is at first expansive and then bright, crisp and inviting you back for another sip. A long lingering aftertaste is highlighted by orange peel, rosemary and toasted hazelnuts.
