Scents of roses, spices and rich earth-mineral notes mingle with red fruit in a seductive manor as only Pinot Noir can be.
This medium full bodied wine has a complex core of fruit with balance that keeps it bright. Well suited to many food types. Elegant without excessive weight. Supple on the palate yet well structured in a way that charms and doesn’t yield. It is truly a natural Pinot in style and color. It doesn’t over power as the more “syrah” styled, black colored versions in the recent marketplace. This is after all what real Pinot Noir is all about! Enjoy!

The fruit was de-stemmed directly into 1 ton open top fermenters where it was punched cap fermented. It was pressed just short of finished fermentation.
