Cirq 2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Aromatics: Deep pomegranate and raspberry aromas, accented with violet and hibiscus flowers, with hints of tangerine peel, vanilla bean, and a touch of cassis.
Flavors: Fresh strawberry with a slight dash of cream. Crisp bing cherry, with a moderate touch of Red Delicious apple skin and all the goodness that it brings. Delicate tannins which ensue and elevate the flavors. The nuances are layered with oolong tea, star anise, pink peppercorn, and freshly baked gingersnap.
Mouthfeel: Rich and round with a satin, velvety texture. Mouthwatering and juicy throughout with fine and delicate tannin, and a resounding finish
