Tasting Notes

A fragrant wine, bursting with candied violets, red berry fruit, forest, and conifer notes that mingle with lightly-roasted espresso beans. Lively, medium-bodied, fresh and inviting with flavors of juicy cherry and tart cranberry leading to farmer’s market ripe strawberries hinting at blood orange. A beautiful herbaceous pop adds dimension to this multidimensional Pinot with plump tannins and grippy, blood-orange acidity, finishing with earthy truffle notes and cedar spices marked by a hint of vanilla.

"This graceful, ethereal Pinot Noir was aged for a mere nine months in neutral oak. It is balanced and restrained with a silky mouthfeel and aromas and flavors of tart red cherries, pine needles and a shot of espresso with lemon. A tremendous value. Editors’ Choice. –M.A."
