Winemaker's Notes

This vintage has uncommon depth and persistence for Pinot Noir, while also being extremely aromatic. There is an abundance of cherry, plum, and raspberry aromas upfront, progressing into floral and mineral notes with tobacco leaf and toasty oak. On the palate, layers of black and red fruits weave around beautifully integrated tannins. The coating mouthfeel, mixed with the refreshing acidity of the wine, creates great complexity and persistence that continues to change and evolve in the glass.

Critical Acclaim

"The wine is a blend of several vineyards in the Green Valley. It shows its cool origins in the brisk acidity and tannins, and the overall delicacy, so balanced and refined in the mouth. Bone dry and zesty, it conveys intricate flavors of cranberries, cola, persimmons and red cherries. It's beautiful now, and should develop well through at least 2020."

Style: Fruity & Smooth
This was a particularly smooth wine. Shared with some friends and paired with lamb and filets. All four of us loved it and two of our crew aren't real big red wine fans. Sorry to say this though, but you might want to look elsewhere for this wine. I purchased it for $48.99, so Wine.com isn't a good source for this one.
