Winemaker's Notes

Produced in a specialized Pinot Noir winery at Nautilus Estate which incorporates principles of minimal handling and gravity flow, this wine is a carefully selected blend from six vineyard sites, hand harvested and de-stemmed without crushing to allow a portion of whole berries in the ferment. Aged in a mixture of new and older French oak barriques to complement and enhance the flavors.

Dark ruby in color, with an aroma of plums, dark fruits and a hint of spice. The palate is medium to full bodied with ripe fruit tannins and oak combining to give great structure and a silky texture.

"Presents a concentrated, lithe core of Asian spice, tangy wild berry and sour cherry pie flavors. Spiciness lingers."

Nicely made, complex, nice fruit, medium body. I was looking for more of a full bodied wine. Good effort
