Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay.

The color is light pink and its aromas are of young pinot fruit. A complex wine with almost bread like yeast and strong earthy notes balanced with a freshness of young fruit. The flavors show plenty of power of nutty pinot, hints of strawberry and yeast. The mouth feel lingers due to the fine bubbles, crisp acid and some sweet Chardonnay flavors.

Distinct pinot noir reflects the Penley Style. A wine of rich pinot noir fruit with elegance and finesse. A wine with full flavor, a rounded middle palate and a finish of fresh finely tuned acid.

Recommended to drink now. Further bottle age at this time will enhance and intensify the complex flavors. Best enjoyed 2006-2009.
