The 1998 vintage - was an exciting one! Although the crop was small in quantity, it made up for it with lavish ripeness. The nose to our vintage pinot this year is immediately reminiscent of fresh bing cherries, but oh, theres more... a definite perception of warm earth, and perhaps thyme? All followed by some exotic things like hibiscus blossom, tea leaf - very interesting!
The mouth feel is soft - an image of red satin comes to mind, and the soft creaminess reminded us of a cherry pôt-de-crème, with an edge of bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee.
