2017 Pinot Noir
A terroir-driven Pinot Noir focused on showcasing the distinct personality of our vineyard site. This is accomplished through decisions and extremely careful handling focused around maintaining the purity of our fruit and avoiding the contribution of outside flavors, primarily through the use of a lower percentage of new oak (25-30%) and a carefully managed fermentation.
This wine reveals an intense perfume of fresh cherries & raspberries, with a Spring flower bouquet, and notes of cinnamon, clove, and cola. Medium-Full bodied, ruby in color, with fine, silky texture, pleasurable persistence, and mouth-watering acidity, that provides tension. This wine has a long finish that lingers with fresh raspberries, rose petals, baking spices, and mineral notes.
