Lots of perfume on this big and rich Burgundy. Lavender and lilac, black cherries and orange blossom on the nose, with hints of earthy roasted mushrooms. Big and broad on the palate, with ultra-ripe black cherries and red currants, as well as nuanced oak and integrated tannins. Silky and smooth, with a long and finessed finish. If I didn't know better, with this much ripe fruit and low acids I would say that this is a well done California Pinot. A Burgundy for those that love new world wines.
