Rugged Elements Santa Nella Pinot Noir 2021

Elegant fruity notes of pomegranate, raspberry, forest floor and baking spices are joined by subtle flavors of Rainer cherry and toasted smores. The palate is structured with soft tannins, excellent acid balance and a persistent finish of red fruit framed with creamy oak.
