Aromatics of raspberry, strawberry, hibiscus, Oolong tea, clove, jasmine and pink flowers are effusive.
The palate is full of finesse with a beautiful, graceful texture and fine tannins, framing deep yet directional flavors echoing the nose. The finish is elegant, as Kashaya always is, leaving plenty of room for the long flavors to linger.
2015 was a year to remember on the True Coast, close to the Pacific. May fog and light rain sabotaged the flowering, and the result was near-historically-low yields. This means that instead of the usual 14-17 barrels from Kashaya, we made just 7 barrels! This also resulted in a highly aromatic, densely concentrated, incredibly spirited Pinot.
