Good deep red. Macerated sour cherries in alcohol on the nose. Silky and highly concentrated but unevolved and not yet showing much nuance. There's an almost syrupy, cherry confiture quality to the fruit; it's like a reduction of cherry today. Made from tiny, thick-skinned berries, this seamless wine finishes with extremely fine tannins and sneaky persistence. This pinot will merit a higher score if it develops more complexity with time in bottle.
