Winemaker's Notes:

As leaders in the world of Pinot Noir, we take special pride in ours, and this one is no exception. Believing that fine wine is "grown" in the vineyard, we crafted it using fruit carefully selected from premium vineyards throughout northern and central California. This achieves the unique balance of delicate Pinot characteristics and more intense fruit flavors found in the different terroirs.

This luscious, fruit-forward Pinot Noir boasts an enticing deep ruby color and concentrated aromas of ripe raspberry, leather, and dried lavender. Mouthwatering flavors of juicy strawberry shortcake are balanced by notes of herbs de Provence and bay leaf, offering a round, structured mouthfeel and a lingering finish of fine-grained tannins.
