Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir 2010

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

The nose consists of dark cocoa powder and poached cherries. Hints of truffle oil and fresh tobacco. Wet earth and dark red forest berries. On the palate you'll find ripe cherries and cherry compote. Fresh bramble with a hint of tar and grilled meat. A round fresh palate with a twang of chalky tannin.

Thus the Innocent Bystander label was created, and his talented winemaking team tasked with delivering a range of wines with a personality all their own: distinctly regional, varietally expressive and definitely not your run of the mill blends.
