Winemaker's Notes

This dynamic Pinot Noir offers initial aromas of cherry pie and brown sugar. Hints of cinnamon and anise tempt your palate and give way to soft sandalwood flavors. Juicy red plum flavors linger offering a luscious, silky mouth feel. This wine is a dazzling example of Pinot Noir's ever changing mood.

Critical Acclaim

"Polished, focused and expressive, with red berry, cherry and floral aromas and flavors that pick up hints of roasted beet and a meaty note as the finish persists against refined tannins. Beautifully made and distinctive. Drink now through 2016. 8,000 cases made."
