Winemaker's Notes

This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir has a deeply perfumed nose of plums, cherries, cinnamon and cloves with earth and oak overtones. The generous flavors of this wine exhibit many of the components found in the nose as well as licorice and cedar. This wine has an exotic character that although is rather subtle, is also very seductive. The texture and balance of the wine give it an almost luxurious feel in your mouth. Although 1997 was not my favorite vintage to start with, this wine has slowly grown on me to the point that I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually becomes one of our best.
