The Full Review

The nose is comfy, as ripe black cherries mingle with citrusy rhubarb and some earthy beetroot, and there is a hint of vanilla woven into some cinnamon. On the chewy palate vanilla folds into spearmint and beetroot transforms into caraway (think rye bread). This wine has great structure, and is a nice representation of the oakier side of Mendocino Pinot.
