It carries a serious clip of cedar wood-accented oak, but the fruit is pure and strong. This is a muscular pinot noir with plum and anise notes bursting through dry spice and wood smoke. The tannin here has the crackle of quality to it, as indeed does the fruit. It has every muscle flexed right now but it'll be better once it's had time to ease off and settle into itself.
