Tasting Notes

A fresh, modern, New World style with a nod to the complexity of Burgundy. This Pinot Noir shows ripe, fresh Raspberry, Strawberry and Vanilla notes on the nose. The palate has a touch of minerality and earthiness layered below the fresh, clean fruit. The wine shows wonderful, youthful drinkability with the potential to age well for 3-5 years.
