Earthy and herbal on the nose with aromas that lean towards the tea and coriander end of the spectrom laced with ginger streaked jammy candied red cherry and strawberry fruit topped with a hint of lime zest. Zesty and slightly textured in the mouth with fine grained tannins that lay under a blanket of fresh, crisp fruit. there are some nice edgy earth tones here and a little spice accenting the cranberry fruit in the mouth. Light, fresh and easy to drink. This may be a bit simple but it got real energy in the mouth and a clean, fresh finish. 87pts

At first, it has a very gamay-like nose, which made me think it wouldn't be a well balanced pinot, but on the palate, it's a great pinot! Nice peppery character with all the delicious strawberry and other pinot-fruits, balanced with a terroir driven Burgundian quality. It's got a lot more depth and complexity than the initial nose would indicate.
