    Winemaker's Notes:

    Carpe Diem is the product of a classic Burgundian winemaking style using Pinot Noir clones from the Pommard and Dijon regions. Firepeak vineyard's unique location at the foot of an extinct volcanic peak has a soil composition that is a mixture marine sediment, clay and volcanic deposits. The hard volcanic sediment stresses the vines forcing deeper roots for more unique varietal characteristics. Small open top fermentation tanks are used with each lot, which are kept separately until the final blend.

    This Burgundian Pinot Noir is elegant and refined with cherry and red fruit flavors complimented by a light smokiness and spice. The dense ruby color is as bold as the cherry and spice bouquet. True to the Burgundian style and to the varietal, the wine has an earthiness to it that graduates into bright and bold red fruits. This wine continues to unfold up until the smooth finish.

    This wine is recommended for pairing with pheasant, elk, roasted duck, grilled seafood or French cheeses.
