Winemaker's Notes

This intensly deep, garnet colored Pinot Noir possesses the rich and concentrated aromas and flavors expected from a Reserve wine. Abundant with raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry aromas, hints of potpourri and lavender gently mix with subtle notes of hay and oak spice. On the palate, flavors of blackberry, plum, raspberry, and currant are artfully accented by the wines thoroughly integrated oak. Both rich and round in the mouth, this Reserve wine possesses a great acid balance, soft and smooth tannins, and a long, velvety finish.
