Boquet of cherry, blueberry and lightly roasted coffee beans. Red/black cherry, sweet broad supple tannins and well integrated acid. Builds nicely to a good finish – a dense, rich representation of Bjornson Vineyard – complex wine with cinnamon, vanilla, mint, good minerality, a perfect combination of spice, earth and fruit. Substantial structure without overpowering – If there’s any left after dinner, this is the perfect leather armchair wine. Pairs perfectly with lamb. Includes clones of Pommard, 115 and 777 clones of Pinot Noir.
