On the nose this wine exhibits very pretty aromas of rose petal, red raspberry, bing cherry, cranberry, soft hints of cedar plank, mineral, and touches of baking spice and cinnamon. It's an elegant aroma profile that explores a balance between fresh red fruits and subtle seconday elements.
On the palate the wine expresses an elagance and balance that is very common throughout the full range of Alysian wines. I get savory flavors of red cherry, tart raspberry, red currant, and just very subtle nuances of earth and mineral. It's a wine that represents very well what I believe to be one of the best Pinot Noir vintages in my wine career that spans the last decade. 92 points
