It has a bright, spicy strawberry nose. Also has aromas of cranberry, red raspberry and notes of white pepper. The palate is a nice mixture of pepper, spice and flora, red fruit. Flavors of pomegranate, red fruits, baking spices, white pepper and some minerality. It's pretty and vibrant. Finishes a bit tart. Time should mellow that out. 3/10/12

This wine is a classic Sonoma Coast Pinot. It displays all red fruit. Unlike it Russian River brethren which lead primarily with dark cherry, this wine shows notes of pomegranate, cranberry, red raspberry and even strawberry. It finishes with a signature white pepper spice, typical of Sonoma Coast Pinots.It has the bright acid that is a calling card of all Halleck Vineyard wines.

Bright red raspberry, strawberry and pomegranate with a touch of dried leaf and earth, with some mineral tones. Bright acid. On the palate, big acid and bright, luscious red fruit. A pretty and spicy pinot driven by red fruit. - Tasted at Halleck Vineyard Feb 2011
