Supple in texture, with rose petal and red fruit aromas, this lively, medium bodied wine
is aged in predominantly French oak, which adds a subtle, toasty vanilla character. Ideal
for current enjoyment, this pinot noir will hold nicely over the next 2 to 3 years.
The 2004 vintage began with an early bud break during an unseasonably warm March, followed by a contrastingly cool April. After a normal May and June, July and the first part of August were on the cool side, but by the end of August, harvest was well underway as a heat spell got ripening going strong and early for most varietals, with all of our pinot noir in by the seventeenth of September.
