Fragrant heirloom roses, ripe black cherries and a touch of tobacco invite the senses into this approachable and enjoyable Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice. Soft and silky through the middle, the wine crescendos on the finish, leaving a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth—an excellent match to wild mushroom flatbread drizzled with a touch of truffle oil.
To focus the vibrant flavors, we picked the fruit in the cool hours of the morning, when flavors were in perfect balance. We immediately crushed the grapes and placed them in stainless steel for a long fermentation at low temperatures. Eight months in European oak barrels knit together the bright fruit elements and imparted nuances of spice.
