Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Pinot Noir vintage has an intense and rich red ruby color with a luxuriant nose of red cherry, black cherry, exotic spices, clove and vanilla, with a hint of earthiness. Because of the wine's beautiful color, tannin structure and many berry fruits, the conditions are present for this blend to develop complex flavors and soft tannins by four to five years of age.
