Winemaker's Notes

The 1995 is a deeply layered vintage. Complex red fruits with accents of blueberry, mint, and French oak fill the nose.

Medium tannins and a ripe sweetness gives length and flavor echo to the finish.

This wine was neither fined nor filtered in order to preserve all of the natural essence. We count this as one of our successes in this, the longest lineage of estate bottled Pinot Noir in America.
