Color: like a typical Pinot noir (light) but with a somewhat brick color indicative of age
nose: rustic, lightly sweet, charred wood
Palate: tart. Earthy but with red fruit. Coats tongue and has a long finish. A little unbalanced toward acidity. Tannins likely fading. Drink within next couple of years. Very enjoyable. Paired with paella.
The alluring aromas of vanilla, lilac and cedar give way to berry, vanilla and tobacco flavors in this expressive red. Features a supple texture, with firm underlying tannins, while balsamic acidity lends a spicy note to the finish. Drink now. 'TM
