Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 delivers more "Oriental Spice" in the nose and on the palate than past Pinot Noirs! It also has more acidity and less oak than past efforts. The highlights are Maraschino and dark cherries followed by strawberries, mocha, vanilla and sandalwood. The finish is firm, tight and spicy with the underlying minerality we like to see in our Pinots.

This 2010 works well with full-flavored dishes like duck or honey baked ham. It also pairs superbly with salmon, ling cod and sea bass!
