Lighter in color, with a slightly pinkish hue and just a little of a watery rim. Soft yet rich nose of stewed red fruits, fresh cherries and raspberries, chunky earthen notes and a slightly smoky aspect which mingles over spices. On the palate things go a little haywire, as there is some sweet red fruits and perfume which lead into a longer finish, but the texture is all wrong. Seriously tingly acidity suggest either a slight secondary fermentation in bottle or some hard core volatile acidity. All tingle + no silk = not so hot Pinot.
