Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

This Pinot noir offers a complex nose of red fruits and vanilla. The supple mouth feel layers raspberry and red cherry fruit, and is complemented by balanced oak and well-integrated tannins. It will pair well with lamb, grilled salmon, and pork tenderloin.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and fragrant, brimming with gorgeous raspberry, strawberry, lingonberry and cream flavors, lingering enticingly on the delicate finish. Drink now through 2014. 1,818 cases made. "
