In its youth, this wine was quite dark for a Pinot Noir. With 13 years of age, it is now medium light with amber tones moving out from the rim. There is nothing mature, though, in the vibrant smells and flavors. Red cherries, red raspberries and baking spices. The spices add some sweetness but the basic theme is tartness. And I like it. Flavors that cling to the tongue and inside of the mouth and dance toward a complex finish.
