2018 Mount Richmond
Deep and brooding with aromas of dark chocolate and ripe Italian plum, its dusty tannins lend structure to lush black currant and blackberry compote flavors. Finishes earthy with dried fig, black tea and pinesap.
“Powerful, smoke- and spice-tinged cherry and blueberry qualities on the nose, along with building floral and vanilla nuances. Musky underbrush and licorice notes emerge with air and carry onto the palate, which offers bitter cherry, blue fruit, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. A sweeter cola note pops up on the impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, which echoes the cherry and floral nuances.”

“Rich ruby color, lush black cherry nose; silky and juicy with bright cherry fruit…tangy and elegant.”

“A suave, concentrated pinot that has a wealth of rich, ripe red and dark cherries on the nose and palate. Oak is beautifully stitched into the fruit here, adding subtle spice and supportive structure to the finish.”
