Earthy character and more a tannic structure than their other Pinot noirs. It has a wonderful mingling of pure red cherries, raspberries, that particular Dundee Hill spice along with an earthy undertone that fills in the wine giving it great dimension without adding to the mass of the wine. This is a bit of a sexy beast of wine that will have power and swagger in its youth and evolve into something exotic and complex with bottle age.
