Is this a Pinot?! Not for the faint at heart who want a predictable Russian River Pinot. First sip I didn't enjoy. Cough syrup and thick. Nose has red fruit and some cola. After it breathed it was more enjoyable if you're not looking for a mild mannered Pinot.

Big, powerful and many to age. Candied red cherry and strawberry, ripe pomegranate, violets, lavender, Cola, and lots of oak influence.
