Road 13 2011 Pinot Noir
Bright cherry and perfume notes are most prominent on the nose of this newly-released pinot noir, with hints of blueberry and leather as well. Light bodied and juicy, the Road 13 is loaded with hints of cherry, tart raspberry, white pepper and cocoa. Light tannins and some splashy acidity retain the vibrancy in this young, cheerful pinot noir.
