Ellenbach Vineyard Pinot Noir is a deep, vibrant ruby in the glass, verging on purple. It displays a beguiling complex nose of black cherry, raspberry, ripe cranberry, anise, rose petal, lavender, and cinnamon. On the palate, dark plum and blackberry combine beautifully with the anise that carries through from the nose. Bright acidity keeps these flavors vibrant, and allows this wine to be dark without being full-bodied. A hint of cranberry, fern and briar on the finish leave no doubt that this is classic Pinot Noir.
"Acidity makes the mouth water, tannins provide a firm framework, oak is perfectly integrated, and the depth of fruit is impressive. Shows flavors of cherry tart, raspberry Newton, cola, buttered cinnamon toast and vanilla that are magnificent and decadent. Elegant and classy."
