2013 Cactus Hill Pinot Noir
The 2013 Cactus hill is a bright garnet color and a complex bouquet of flowers, fruit and spice. The first aromas are of hibiscus flowers with a slight fragrance of rose petals. Dark cherry, cranberry and raspberry aromas come through as you swirl your glass. Cinnamon, clove, pepper and cardamom accent the fruit aromas and intrigue the palate. With the first sip you taste the flavors of strawberry jam, cherry cola and raspberry liqueur. There are hints of caramel, butterscotch and cinnamon toast accenting the bold fruit. The wine has an extended finish with the lingering taste of spiced berries, pomegranate seeds and orange rind.
