Winemaker's Notes

This wine is ruby red in color and has substantial aromas of red cherry and plum. In addition to the fruit, I notice fragrances of cinnamon, allspice, and leather, the leather being something I feel is classic in good Pinot Noir. In the mouth, I taste pomegranate and cranberry along with a continuation of the red cherry from the nose of the wine. These fruity flavors are accompanied by a pleasant buttery vanilla taste which was derived from the French barrels and the malolactic fermentation the wine underwent. The wine has a soft-tannic finish. -Steve MacRostie
