Winemaker's Notes

Complex aromatics of coffee, sandalwood and cherry precede a lush and full mouth with flavors of maple syrup, chocolate, plum and toast.

"A marvelous value, the Tavola brings bright raspberry fruit, spicy black tea and Dr. Pepper flavors to the fore. Details include streaks of licorice and baking chocolate; it's got great complexity for a wine in this price range, and steers clear of the vegetal/leafy stuff that plagues a lot of Oregon Pinot. This is complex and almost satiny as it swoops through the finish."
-Wine Enthusiast
