Curvaceous and oppulent, dripping meaty dessert and wet chalkboard over an abrasive front of sweaty leather that coats the mouth. OUTSTANDING Pinot Noir juxtapositions: bitter and rich, long and short, hot and cold, matchhead burn and barnyard chafe accompany bright fruit. Although the tri-appell blend resembles a popular supermarket Pinot, this is NOT vapid bullshit for the #womenwholovewine masses. This is compelling, bittersweet decadence with a 10-minute finish.
