2012 Trifecta Russian River Pinot Noir
Aromas of rose petals, red cherry, raspberry and strawberry jam leap out of the glass with underlying layers of baking spices, vanilla bean and caramel. The bright fruit greets you on the forward palate and spreads throughout the mid palate with classic balance and acidity. The round edges continue with the fruit flavors turning darker showing elements of anise and wild berry that linger on the finish.
