Princeofpinot.com 93 - Moderately light ruby red color in the glass. The nose opens over time in the glass, revealing opulent aromas of dark red berries and Asian spices. Polished and light on its feet, with vivid flavors of red cherries and berries framed by engaging tannins and juicy acidity. A good example of power without muscle that makes Pinot Noir so seductive.
2013 Deer Meadows Pinot Noir shows exotic Asian spice on the nose with orange peel and earth tones. The palate is brisk with bright cherry and light plum on the mid-palate.
