Bing cherry, gunpowder, and baking spices dominate the nose. Chamomile, cocoa powder, and a touch of cigar box lead you on an aromatic journey into classic Russian River Pinot noir territory. On the palate there is a handful of baking spices and dried herbs that balance out the rich fruit flavors of dark cherry and raspberry. There is a nice collection of chunky tannins that give way to cola and pretty herbs on the finish.
