Garnet red in color. Aromas of fragrant dried spice, blackberry and plum, with wafts of freshly ground coffee. A multi-layered wine delivering sweet fruit, and a creamy mid-palate. Savory hints are seen behind the typical licorice and red fruit characters of our vineyards.
"Fresh and aromatic, with rich notes of forest floor and baking spices announcing the cherry and berry flavors. Offers a rich texture and a taut, cedary finish."
"Although the winery is best known for top-flight aromatic whites, Spy Valley's Pinot Noir is steadily improving, and the 2011 is a notable success. Plummy fruit is accented by hints of toasty oak and damp moss, balanced by crisp acids and delivered on a soft, creamy palate."
"Palish bright red. Sexy aromas of cherry, raspberry and spices. Juicy, spicy and expressive, conveying lovely pinot freshness of red fruits. My enthusiasm was a bit muted by a strong cinnamon oakiness on the finish."
