Aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels, this lively ruby colored Pinot Noir demonstrates its complexity on the nose with components of rose petal, sweet oak, raspberry, blueberry, and spice. Demonstrating velvety tannins on the palate, this wine exhibits flavors of raspberry, vanilla, bing cherry, clove, and forest floor that lead to a long finish. Enjoy now through 2035.

Vineyard Notes

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.
