Winemaker's Notes

Our biggest crop of the 1990's produced a wine stylistically reminiscent of Burgundy. The color is medium to dark ruby, in the mouth it is crisp acidity (all natural) and loads of kirsch liqueur, spice box, roasted herbs and cedar in an expressive bouquet. The wine is medium-bodied with freshness, impressive elegance and finesse. This is by no means a blockbuster, super-concentrated style of Pinot Noir but one of lace and grace. The high natural acidity has ensured a certain freshness and will guarantee longevity.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright, supple and open-textured, offering disarmingly pure currant and blackberry flavors that linger elegantly on the extra-long finish. Not a blockbuster; it's just yummy and refined. Tannins aren't intrusive, making it tempting to drink already."
