Dark and brooding, this is one of those Pinots you could tell all your problems to...and maybe get some answers. Earthy in style, with overt characters of smoke and mushrooms, the wine slowly transforms in the glass to reveal flavors of berry and cherry, along with a savory herbal note that knits everything together. The wine remains incredibly approachable and alluring, and just brings you in deeper with each sip.
