The Heirloom 2008 in the glass reveals a dark ruby hue with a deep saturation and vibrancy. Aromas of dark cherry and berry fruit are complimented by spicebox components of cardamom, gingerbread, nutmeg and a hint of licorice. Flavors of concentrated and focused dark berry fruit are lifted by vibrant acidity and youthful notes, which build dimension and complexity with bottle age. Additionally, fine, plush tannins and minerality make this a hallmark vintage of Heirloom.
The 2008 Pinot Noir Heirloom was bottled with no fining or filtration (as were most of its siblings). Made from old Pinot Noir selections (hence the name), it displays a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet aromas of blueberries, boysenberries, blackberries, forest flora and Asian spices. This full-bodied, lush, complete Pinot should drink nicely for 7-10 years.
