Jackhammer Pinot Noir 2014
This wine's bouquet sings with aromas of red cherry, ripe strawberry, cola and baking spices. On the palate soft mouthfeel complements these flavors of black cherry, wild strawberry cola, cinamon stick and fresh cracked white pepper. Soft tannins and a dash of acidity end in a beautifully balanced, clean finish.
