Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, a firm, dry texture and a warmingly fruity finish. The fruit is forward and clean, and the wine shows good concentration and a fine natural edge. It should belegantly flavored with new French oak, but with the tannins speak to that book. A pretty good Pinot Noir, dry and elegantly constructed, with crisp acidity and a backbone of tannins. The flavors are rich and juicy, but the wine is so nice, you can drink it now. You can even give it a few years for the tannins to soften a bit, but it should be fine now. The coolest of the Thornton line of the vintage, the wine revels in its youth, beginning with tart tones of wild berry and red cherry, and culminating with waves of silky tannins and a long, softly lush finish.
