This is a bit more aromatically elegant with a moderately high-toned mix of both red and blue pinot fruit, earth and discreet spice nuances. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension and solid delineation to the medium-bodied flavors that enjoy a sophisticated mouth feel thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins that shape the supple and utterly delicious finish that is mildly dry in the best sense. This should reward a few years in the cellar but also drink well young if desired. AM
