This velvety, ruby red Pinot Noir showcases rich notes of black cherry, rhubarb, tobacco leaf, and cinnamon on the nose. This wine’s opulence is further highlighted by flavors of dark chocolate, plum, cherry, and sweet French oak. The lavish finish of this Pinot Noir stands out with sumptuous fruit, earth, and tannic components that provide a long, lingering finish. Enjoy now until 2035.
Following on the heels of a cold winter, early spring was very wet with double our typical precipitation in March. Rapidly warming temperatures in April led to buds breaking almost a week early – these favorable conditions continued, leading to very strong fruit set after a mid-June bloom. The abundance of fruit allowed for meticulous hand thinning; only the fruit meeting stringent quality parameters was allowed to ripen. Excellent weather continued throughout the summer, resulting in excellent ripening conditions. Moving into late summer/early fall the grape clusters were in outstanding condition which combined with unusually dry conditions allowed for extended hang time and enhanced flavor development.
