Marcassin "Three Sisters" Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast 2005

Light, dull red.

Sexy nose of red licorice, red cherry, savory meat/nut and herbs. Difficult to resist.

Round and mouth-filling, completely coats the mouth with red cherry and potent "red hot"/cinnamon stick flavors but with no sense of weight. Acid/cinnamon tannin edge keeps this in line, but is unobtrusive. Very refined for something so sensual - really beautiful stuff. Red hot/cinnamon flavor stuck in the mouth.
