Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Pinot Noir possesses vibrant notes of cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate with hints of allspice and sassafras. On the palate the wine is quite dense with both red and black fruits, especially cherry and boysenberry coming to the fore. The coolness of the wine really forges the finish with fine tannins and bright minerality to the long aftertaste.
