This offers up aromas of candied red cherry fruit with smoky top notes and gently floral and herbal framing notes. Nicely built with moderately rich fruit and well-integrated acids in a fruity style of Pinot. The wood adds some sweetness here and a touch of vanilla up front, with fairly intense sweet cherry fruit on the moderately long finish. Finishes with some tannins still to be resolved. 88pts
