Winemaker's Notes

In the glass, the 2003 Emery displays a pleasing clarity and great depth of color promising a big, powerful wine. The aromas and the flavors fulfill this promise with black currant, raspberry and plum, followed by hints of licorice, spice, rosemary and violets that add complexity and delicacy to the sweet, juicy palate impression. The full fruit is framed by distinct yet balanced tannins, and by crisp acidity.

Very approachable now, the 2003 Emery will cellar well for up to 10 years. Enjoy with rich, hearty fare such as steak, barbequed ribs, lasagna, and grilled eggplant. As with all WillaKenzie 2003 Estate Pinot Noirs, it is recommended that you open and decant this wine a couple of hours before serving.

The vineyards are planted with grapes of the Pinot family, mostly new Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from Alsace.
