Relatively austere, cold-climate Pinot that's reaching the end of its development cycle. Reticent nose and flavors display very earthy cherry and raspberry fruit, roasted vegetables, and a touch of spiciness in a fairly tart and compressed style. I'm guessing this wine would have been more compelling a couple of years ago. - HK 2018-11-14
