Vivid ruby-red. Complex, highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices show mineral and blood orange nuances. Sappy, palate-staining red fruit and floral pastille flavors are brightened by a suggestion of smoky minerals and a refreshingly bitter rhubarb quality that develops with aeration. The floral and spice elements build steadily with air and carry through an impressively long, seamless finish. This graceful Pinot is delicious now, but its balance suggests a long, smooth arc of aging.
