Winemaker's Notes

This is the second vintage of Pinot Noir produced (in part) from our new "Santa Rosa Hills Ranch" vineyard, and what a difference a year makes! The aromas are a pleasing array of delicious scents that fan out with time in the glass; the first wave carries brown spice and black pepper notes, strawberry jam and licorice follow the lead with an essence of graham cracker crust, shortbread and a hint of smoke adding nuance and complexity.

In the mouth the wine is fully flavored without being tannic or heavy. The entrance is bright and fresh, yet sweet and ripe too. Juicy fruit flavors of cherry and blueberry cascade across the palate. French oak is present in the background, adding support. This is a wine with power and elegance, remaining balanced through and through. Enjoy over the next 6-8 years with everything from grilled tuna to roasted lamb.
