J.K. Carriere "Vespidae" Pinot Noir
Deep red garnet is the color thrown. Pencil, blond spice, cola, white pepper, leather and earth waft from the glass. Dry cherry, blueberry and rhubarb meet jerky and snuff (green tobacco?) on the palate. It finishes long on nectarine with fine front-of-mouth tannin that lingers.
